HBaseCon (founded in 2012) is the premier conference for the Apache HBase community—including committers/contributors, developers, operators, learners, and users (including some of those managing the largest deployments in the world). If you run Apache HBase in production or aspire to do so, HBaseCon has no substitute!
Apache HBase is a native distributed data store for the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. Its community works independently within the ASF to provide HBase software under the permissive Apache license.
