Pulsar Virtual Summit North America 2021

Pulsar Summit is the conference dedicated to Apache Pulsar, and the messaging and event streaming community. The conference gathers an international audience of CTOs/CIOs, developers, data architects, data scientists, Apache Pulsar committers/contributors, and the messaging and streaming community. Together, they share experiences, exchange ideas and knowledge, and receive hands-on training sessions led by Pulsar experts.

Last year, Pulsar Summit Virtual Conference and Pulsar Summit Asia featured 80 interactive sessions by tech leads, open-source developers, software engineers, and software architects from Salesforce, Splunk, Verizon Media, Iterable, Yahoo! JAPAN, TIBCO, OVHcloud, Clever Cloud, and more. The conferences garnered 1,600 attendees around the globe, including attendees from top tech, fintech and media companies, such as Google, Microsoft, AMEX, Salesforce, Disney, and Paypal.

This year, the summit will be hosted virtually on June 16th-17th. The speaker committee includes top Pulsar experts, such as Apache Pulsar PMC members Sijie Guo, CEO of StreamNative, Matteo Merli and Sanjeev Kulkarni from Splunk, and Joe Francis from Verizon.
