Apache Hadoop committer

August 3, 2013

A quick post celebrating that I recently was made a committer on the Apache Hadoop project. I owe a big thanks to everyone who's reviewed my patches and helped me along the way (especially my colleagues ATM, Todd, and Colin here at Cloudera).

My very first patch was HDFS-1952 in May 2011, via a Hadoop hackathon hosted at Cloudera. It was the most promising newbie HDFS JIRA on the list, and I still remember all the basic issues I had checking out the repo, setting up Eclipse, using Ant, and generating the diff. Two years later, these things have gotten easier :)

Here's to many more contributions in the future!
