Why is that elephant eating ice cream? Just about everyone in the Bay Area has been thinking about ice cream this week – it was 93 degrees at our office in Sunnyvale yesterday – so it seemed like just the right thing to serve up at HBaseCon next week.

If you’re at HBaseCon on Monday, stop by the 3pm networking break for some ice cream and other refreshments. Some of the Pepperdata team will be around to say hello. We’ll be at the conference all day and would love to hear from you about what you’re doing with HBase and what some of your “wish list” items are for your HBase and Hadoop deployments. If you don’t find us right away, tweet us @pepperdata, and we can talk!

Of course if you haven’t registered for HBaseCon yet, it’s a great opportunity to connect with peers. Thanks to the folks at Cloudera for letting us sponsor the afternoon break!
