MarkLogic World 2012 Highlights

May 04, 2012    

My favorite parts of the conference in no particular order:

  • Demonstrations of features from early builds of MarkLogic 5.1 (Plex)
  • An excellent discussion on the architecture of dynamic semantic publishing at BBC from Jem Rayfield (blog post)
  • The huge number of customer presentations
  • Discussing reporting, analytics, and visualization approaches for Big Data
  • Party at the National Air and Space Museum
  • Bumping into XQuery hackers I hadn’t seen in person for years, and some I only knew from the Interwebs
  • Being able to metro home
