The latest product news and company announcements from Hortonworks

Back in late June when Hortonworks was officially announced at Hadoop Summit, we explained that our strategy was going to focus on accelerating the development and adoption of Apache Hadoop. We made bold statements about the opportunities that Apache Hadoop had to become the de facto platform for big data. We even predicted that half of the world’s data would be processed by Apache Hadoop within five years.

We also talked about how in order for all of that to happen, we needed to address the technical and knowledge gaps that exist.…

Dennis M. Richie was a giant of our craft and a truly great teacher. Millions of folks owe their passion for programming to K&R. It literally started their careers.

So far the feedback we’re received has been very positive.

I haven’t been able to read every article but a few have caught my eye that I wanted to share.…
