Hortonworks Community Connection — Celebrating Year 1

Wow, I really can’t believe it has only been one year since we launched Hortonworks Community Connection — HCC. What started as a project to make communication between our technical teams more transparent has blossomed into a fantastic and engaging website.

Here are just some of the interesting numbers:

  • There are now over 40,000 assets on the site ranging from deep-dive technical articles, code galleries and repositories, to answers to almost every question from Apache Ambari to Apache ZooKeeper and all the big data technologies in between.
  • We now have over 10,000 registered users
  • Google Analytics has a hard time keeping up with the millions of page views generated by the tens of thousands of unique visitors.

HCC proves that it “takes a village” the community generates the unique content every day. We are indebted to everyone on the leaderboard, especially the Gurus, who are the real heroes behind HCC’s success.


Join us on HCC and experience what community is all about. To get you started here are the top 10 technical articles of all time:

Thanks again for a great first year, can’t wait to see how year two exceeds all our expectations.
