Subject Re: Arrow Board Report: Request for Feedback
Date Mon, 11 Jul 2016 05:07:51 GMT
hi Jacques,

I would mention there's been a significant synergy between C++ efforts
in Apache Parquet to build a bridge between the projects (which will
be a nice proof-of-concept of the benefits of the common in-memory
columnar layer).  Uwe Korn has been really active here with 33 commits
to Parquet and 21 to Arrow.

Micah Kornfield has been contributing significant to the reification
process of the specs and IPC / memory sharing procedure. We should
prioritize assembling a more fully formed first-cut metadata spec and
getting rudimentary integration tests working between the Java and C++
implementations before we make a release.

- Wes
