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...]

Success at Apache: A Newbie’s Narrative

by Kuhu Shukla As I sit at my desk on a rather frosty morning with my coffee, looking up new JIRAs from the previous day in the Apache Tez project, I feel rather pleased. The latest community release vote is complete, the bug fixes that we so badly needed are in and the new release that we tested out internally on our many thousand strong... [Read more...]
