New page:
= Welcome to the Apache Avro Wiki! =

This Wiki provides an unofficial source for information about Apache Avro.

The official Avro website is at [http:://hadoop.apache.org/avro/].

= Overview =

Avro is a data serialization system.

Avro provides:
 * Rich data structures.
 * A compact, fast, binary data format.
 * A container file, to store persistent data.
 * Remote procedure call (RPC).
 * Simple integration with dynamic languages.  Code generation is not required to read or
write data files nor to use or implement RPC protocols.  Code generation as an optional optimization,
only worth implementing for statically typed languages.

= User Documentation =

There have been no releases of Avro yet, so there is no official published documentation yet
exists.  Potential developers are encouraged to checkout the code from [http://hadoop.apache.org/version_control.html
subversion] and build the documentation.
