And Now for Something Completely Different – HazelVision

Mike Yawn | Jun 24, 2021

This week we’re launching a new web series we’re calling HazelVision.  HazelVision is a set of technically oriented videos geared toward topics of interest to a technical audience. We’ll try to keep them to around 5 minutes each so they’re quick to watch, but we’ll point you to sources of deeper information if you want to learn more. Topics may be specific to Hazelcast (feature-specific mini-tutorials, or discussion of product features) or they might be more general topics such as understanding CAP Theorem or moving to the cloud.

Although we hope to keep to a once-a-week cadence, topics will not be covered in any linear order, so you’re free to jump around to the topics you find of interest without worrying about spoilers.

We’ve had some fun with our intros by referencing classic TV shows, but unlike a similarly-named recent series we don’t have a mega-budget to stage multiverse-rending epic battles, but we will try to pass along some useful info (such as our weekly Cluster Facts installment). You provide the popcorn and soda, and we’ll provide the show.

In the first episode, we’ll cover getting started with Hazelcast. Even if you’re a long-time user, you may find something new here as we’ll cover how to get Hazelcast running in just 5 minutes by installing a package manager and launching using the Command Line Interface.

Future episodes will cover getting started with Hazelcast stream processing, how partitioning and backups work, and other topics. We’re always open to suggestions about what you’d like to see covered and would recommend joining our Slack channel.

For now, enjoy the first episode!
