It’s been a busy few weeks here at Hortonworks and much of that busyness comes from all of the things we’ve been doing with our partners. This has been a stretch of time that we’ve affectionately been calling May-magedon with 9 major partner related events in a two and a half week span. We love telling the story of of the transformative nature of Apache Hadoop along with the increasing pervasiveness of enterprise Hadoop driven through a vibrant ecosystem.
Here are some of the highlights from the last few weeks and beyond:
