Success at Apache: Why you'd want to become an Apache Committer

by Dmitriy Pavlov

All newbies in Open Source communities may sometimes think that they’ll never be able to become Committers. Many treat this role as a prestigious one, granted only for special feats, and after having written a ton of code. But not all things are so simple, and I hope my story will help you. 


Election as Apache Committer

My journey with The Apache Software Foundation began relatively recently, in 2015. I was working for Openway Group, and was enthusiastic about in-memory computing. I got to know about Apache Ignite at a local developers conference. I implemented the POC of a backend system based on Apache Ignite. I was so impressed with the clear API and documentation, and it was also very convenient that I could start prototyping without passing through the approval process. I suggested using the Apache product instead of a source-available solution. I met Konstantin Boudnik (cos), who helped me to understand the difference between Apache projects and source-available/closely-governed products.


Luckily for me, GridGain, the company that initially donated Ignite to the Apache Incubator, has a development center in my city (Saint Petersburg, Russia). I joined the GridGain team in 2017.


As part of my day job, I provide patches to the product. I actively joined the dev.list discussions (some fellows sometimes say “too actively”). I’ve created a number of wiki pages - ‘Apache Ignite-Under the hood’ to help developers understand product internals. Also, I developed ‘Direct IO’ plugin. I was elected as a Committer.

In 2018 I was concerned about reviews of patches from members of the community not affiliated with GridGain. Since I had a commit-bit now, I’ve started to review patches and ask others to review them, too. I don’t know for sure, but I suppose - these social achievements in the community development were a basis for me being elected as Project Management Committee (PMC) member. 


I asked several questions about The Apache Way on the Community Development (“ComDev”) dev list. I was very impressed by how friendly and welcoming they are. I very much like such a positive atmosphere, and feel it influences the success of Apache projects. Now I’ve also joined Apache Training (incubating) community as Committer and PPMC (Podling Project Management Committee) member.


Quite funny for a software developer with 17 years of experience… being elected as a Committer, that is to say, because of the social aspects and documentation. 


Who is a typical Committer and where does his or her strength lie?

When creating an Open Source product, we always let the users explore it in action -- as well as allow them to modify it and distribute modified copies. But when such modified copies are replicated in an unsupervised manner, we don’t get contributions into the main codebase and the project stalls. It’s here where we need exactly such a person – the Committer – someone who is authorized to merge user contributions into the project.


Why should you become a Committer?

First of all, being assigned to a Committer role is extremely motivating. The professional community acknowledges you and your work, and you clearly see the results of your work in action.


How different is that from some enterprise project -- where you have no idea why you must continually keep shuffling various XML fields?


The second pure advantage of being a Committer is an opportunity to connect with top professionals and also pull some cool ideas from Open Source into your own project. But, if you aren’t one of the top professionals, certainly don’t be afraid to join -- the community has various tasks for different folks.


Besides, being a Committer is a jewel in your CV --and even a greater plus for junior programmers, because at interviews you are often asked to show code samples. If you know an Open Source project well, a company supporting or using it will be happy to hire you. There are some people who will tell you that great positions are unreachable without first committing in Open Source.


There are some bonus goodies, too! For example, Apache Committers get an IntelliJ Idea Ultimate license for free (albeit with some limitations).


How do you become a Committer?

You should be committed to the project --it’s just that simple. Development, writing tests and documentation, and simply answering questions on lists are also good ways to start working towards committership.

Yeah, the contributions of QA engineers and technical writers in the community are valued no less than the developers’ contributions.

If you think there are no tasks for you on some project, you are wrong. Just join the community you are interested in and start working on its tasks. 

The Apache Software Foundation has this dedicated page that lists what contributions are needed.  

Committer — to be or not to be?

Committer activity is a good and useful endeavor, but one shouldn’t strive to become a committer per se. This status can be granted not only for code and it doesn’t justify your proficiency. 


Find a project you may be interested in: it will probably be a project whose software you already use. Dive into its code and say hi to the community; offer help, improve docs, complete a newbie ticket or answer to a user. You may just be surprised how welcoming and open folks are there.


Strive to gain the expertise (knowledge and experience) while researching the project, tweaking it and helping others to solve their problems, and, hopefully, enjoying collaborative development in an Open Source project.


Getting started at http://community.apache.org/ will help you on your way.

"Success at Apache: The Path To Berlin"

by Isabel Drost-Fromm

"A decade ago" - according to common wisdom for software engineering that's the equivalent of the stone age: The only constant is change - and rapid change at that.

This blog post is going to tell an entirely different story: One about what persistence, patience and continuous engagement can accomplish. One about what can happen when people are working together.

It was over a decade ago, in 2008, when I met with people interested in the then-hyped Apache Hadoop project to create a quarterly meetup on everything data analytics, text mining, scalable data storage. That was when the (Apache) Hadoop Get Together Berlin took place at newthinking store - a co-working space and event location before that format itself was turned into a business model http://blog.isabel-drost.de/posts/scaling-user-groups336.html.

A year later it was clear that an ApacheCon EU was unlikely to happen in Europe. When Simon Willnauer, Jan Lehnardt and myself approached The Apache Software Foundation about holding the event in Berlin - the kind people at Apache who did have experience with ApacheCon successfully stopped us: Given the baggage around the event, the trademark implication, the expectation that all sorts of different people had as well as the pure http://blog.isabel-drost.de/posts/how-hard-can-it-be-organising-a-conference.html logistics of creating an event that's bigger than 100 people, that was a safe and likely wise decision.

What they didn't achieve though was to stop us from running some event the following year: We at least wanted to give friends from the Big Data and search communities an excuse to make their employers pay for a trip to Berlin in summer: http://blog.isabel-drost.de/posts/my-highly-subjective-berlin-buzzwords-recap290.html. This was possible due to some lucky conditions we found ourselves in: Knowing conference organisers who were willing to share their know-how such as legal issues and boundaries with us Finding an event company (newthinking.de) that was supporting the idea.

Being employed by a company https://www.neofonie.de/ that saw value in sponsoring the event by allowing me to do so during my working hours.

While successful, part of the ASF community was still missing though. Fast forward several years to 2017, a new conference concept was born. Under the name of FOSS Backstage, we focus on the one topic that every project at Apache has to deal with: Governance, legal, security, economics https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/entry/success-at-apache-cookie-monster Issues that are not an Apache exclusive issue, but true for everyone - individuals as well as legal entities - involved in open source projects.

The only caveat: We had intentionally left all technical content out of scope for FOSS Backstage. For the data analytics crowd the event was conveniently co-located with Berlin Buzzwords. For the remaining content, Sharan Foga kindly volunteered for coordinating to run an Apache Roadshow alongside FOSS Backstage together with newthinking for two days after Berlin Buzzwords and in parallel to FOSS Backstage. With a name different than ApacheCon this left quite some room for experimenting beyond the traditional ApacheCon format.

Little over a year after that ApacheCon finally is on its way to the city of Berlin: With https://twitter.com/plainschwarz as event organisers, in collaboration with the Apache Software Foundation - with Myrle Krantz as event chair to coordinate between the ASF and the local event team.

In retrospect, the series of events was an interesting journey. There's a couple of lessons I've learned that carry over to open source software development - but also a few that are distinctly different.

1.Patches welcome - turn people that come with feature requests into active contributors

Instead of accepting feature requests from people, it helps to pull them in to submit their own patches: Early on there were requests for a barcamp, for a lightning talk session, for trainings. My response back then: Submit the idea through the CfP form, find someone to run it and we'll run it through the regular submission process adding it to the schedule if it fits.

For the trainings we went for a slightly different approach: Instead of directly offering them ourselves we reached out to established training providers suggesting to run with a co-location/ co-promotion approach.

For those that asked for free tickets we would turn them into helping hands - either on site, during setup or (in the first year) as local guides taking groups of up to twenty people out for dinner in a restaurant close by that they had selected.

For those that asked for more content on some specific topic we offered the option of organising a deep dive satellite event on Wednesday after the conference at one of the many companies willing to host these in Berlin.

In general we left a lot of room and freedom to those who wanted to get involved and add content to the event that they found missing.

2. Decisions are made by those doing the work

While feedback is important, there is a limit to what can feasibly be realised for any given conference budget. While we value feedback from anyone involved, the final decisions need to be taken by those actively contributing time to the event. As a result, that also means that not all feedback can always be taken into account - at least not right away, maybe at a later stage or in a different event, the consecutive year or just taken as an impulse to come up with new fresh ideas.

3. "It's done when it's done" is not an option

Conferences are slightly different from open source releases in that there are hard deadlines - in combination with a fixed budget coming in from attendees and sponsors and some hard features that cannot be postponed to the next release (unless you're organising a remote only conference, running without a venue is pretty much impossible.) That circumstance makes organisation slightly more prone to conflict than your average open source project: There's no cheap way to go down both paths and only at the very last minute decide which is better - or even offering both options.

4. Balancing public and private communication

At Apache we value public communication: Often having discussions in the open invites others to participate and shows where contributions are needed. When it comes to budget, ticket pricing, communication with sponsors, contracts including specific prices for venues this approach becomes a whole lot harder. Even though it helps to provide a dedicated mailing list for program committee members as well as interested attendees to get in touch.

It also helps to make some of the planning background public - either while discussions are ongoing, or at least after a conclusion has been reached: http://blog.isabel-drost.de/posts/berlin-buzzwords-scheduling-behind-the-scenes118.html (caveat: the algorithm has changed substantially since this was published, but the article did help answer a lot of questions.)

One downside to this mode of operation is that people who potentially could provide valuable insight or help out have no idea of what is going on. Another downside is that for the outside world it becomes invisible how large a team it takes to make the event successful. As a tiny fix for that we always tried to make the team involved publicly known.

5. Bringing people together

At Apache we have a tradition to work asynchronously - on archived, searchable, referenceable mailing lists. Without that way of working we wouldn't be able to build bridges across timezones, geographies, cultures and organisations. It wouldn't be possible to collaborate for people with wildly different time schedules. Despite all this hearing people speak when reading their texts makes it easier to understand their tone correctly. Despite all this there are topics that are best shared face to face only for deniability reasons. Despite all this, meeting someone in person who so far has been communicating only remotely with you can be a ton of fun. I hope that you will join that fun in October in Berlin: Looking forward to seeing you there!

Interested in all things search and text mining with a thorough background in open source project management and open collaboration she is working Europace AG as Open Source Strategist. True to the nature of people living in Berlin she loves having friends fly in for a brief visit –- as a result she co-founded and is still one the creative heads behind both, Berlin Buzzwords, a tech conference on all things search, scale and storage as well as FOSS Backstage, a conference on all things Free and Open Source behind the scenes and how it interrelates with business and InnerSource. She is a member of the inaugural Open Source and Intellectual Property Advisory Group of the United Nations Technology Labs (UNTIL).
