NABDConf is back for 2017!

The conference by developers for developers is once again bringing together engineers who have spent their careers resolving difficult problems at scale with other engineers who are facing similar challenges or who are just plain curious as to what’s going on behind the scenes at web-scale companies like Criteo, Spotify and Uber.

This year, we will discuss topics like moving PB-scale Hadoop operations from bare metal to the Google Cloud, building billion node, billion edge graphs, visualizing tremendous volumes of data in a browserpretty much everything you would ever want to know about building large-scale data pipelines, how one keeps track of PBs of data, and raw database performance.

In addition to spending a riveting day with world class engineers in an intimate conference, you’ll get to hobnob with them at the after party on Criteo’s stunning rooftop deck in the heart of South Pigalle in Paris. 

Criteo will donate all proceeds from ticket sales to Techfugees, a social enterprise mobilizing the international tech community to respond to the refugee situation. Techfugees organizes conferences, workshops and hack-a-thons around the world in an effort to supply a pool of tech solutions and tech talent to NGOs working with refugees, and refugees themselves. Proceeds from NABDConf will go toward a one month mentoring program for women refugees in Paris this September.
