Apache in 2018 - By The Digits

It's been a great year for the Apache community at-large. With nearly 200M lines of code under the ASF's stewardship, our ongoing success is the result of community-led development "The Apache Way", executed through the collaborative efforts of more than 300 Apache projects and their communities. Highlights include: Apache... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: the Apache Legal Shield - a pra...

by Bertrand Delacretaz I became active in the ASF in 2001 via Gianugo Rabellino -- he was the one who started the discussions with Apache Fop about me donating the jfor XLS-FO to RTF converter that I had developed earlier. It was already too late to uninvent RTF which is a terrible format, but I digress. I am currently a member of the Board of... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: The Apache Way for Executives

by Alex Karasulu I'm a long time member of the Apache Software Foundation and have been an executive officer of several corporations over the course of the past 20 years. I've co-founded several projects in the community and mentored several others. The "Apache Way" has benefited several aspects of my life, however I never... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: the Chance to Influence the Wor...

by  Weiwei Yang I submitted my first patch to Apache Hadoop in 2015, a very simple bug fix with just a few lines of changes. However the feeling is still vivid to me when the patch was accepted, I felt great accomplishment. It was not about how big the change was, but rather because I knew even a small change would help a lot of people.... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: Dip into the Apache Way

by Nick Couchman Like other recent contributors to this blog, I am not a developer by trade. My day job is as a Linux Systems Engineer and team manager, and, truth be told, my programming skills are not something I would rely on to make a living. Despite these facts, I've found something beyond acceptance in being a part of the Apache... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: Am I there yet? A n00b's pe...

by Charles Givre Let me start out by saying that I am not a developer. I do have a technical background, but I hadn't coded in Java for at least 10 years before I got involved in the Apache Drill project. One has to wonder how, as a non-developer, I ended up as a committer for the Drill project. In this blog post, I'd like to share... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: Open Innovation from a Non-nati...

by Von Gosling When I saw the "Success at Apache" series, I thought about writing something about my, being from a non-native English country, Open Source experience these past few years. Last year, RocketMQ graduated from the Apache Incubator and became one of the Apache Top-Level Projects. As one of the original co-founders of... [Read more...]

Success at Apache: Contributing to Open Source eve...

by Anthony Shaw I believe in the mission of the ASF for many reasons, but the first is the reason why I got into open-source software- free and open access to knowledge. Back when I was age 12 (1998), I started to learn to program in dBase 4. dBase 4 and the compiler Clipper were not cheap, especially for a $5-a-week paper-round.... [Read more...]
