Subject: Re: [INTRODUCTIONS] Hi I'm Greg and I'm part of the Apache HAWQ community


Dear all,


My name is HongWu(xunzhang is my ID on the Internet). I began to contribute to HAWQ this year
and now become the HAWQ committer. I wrote near
100 commits to make HAWQ better! I am a believer of open source since I benefit a lot from
open source projects and I know the true meaning of it. I think open source is more than
 just publishing the code. It is delivering comprehensive documents/tutorials, collecting
users/developers/feedbacks, establish discussion/comparison, solving confusions/issues, reproducing
good or bad results, making clear roadmap, keeping long-term development,
 treating the project as our own child. Moreover, Apache Software Foundation is an elite community
in the open source world, there are lots of high-quality projects, developers and users.


I started my career 2012 at Douban which is a social network website connecting people with
interest such as book, movie, music, photo, blog and so on. I was working as an algorithm
engineer there, focused on developing large-scale machine
 learning platforms and optimizing recommendation engine. I am the author of 
Paracel open source project, which is a distributed computational framework designed for
machine learning, graph algorithms and scientific computing. Paracel wants to simplify the
distributed and communication details for model developers and data scientists,
 lets them be concentrated on model developing. During this period, I also created the Plato:
a real-time recommendation system. This work got very outstanding results on
douban.fm product. Plato changed the architecture of Douban's offline processing way to do
machine learning.


It's a very exciting jouney with HAWQ! In my point of view, SQL engine is a super critical
infrastructure in the big data ecosystem. I have tried to design a parallel programming language
named Girl(for some reason it's still at very early
 stage), but no matter how simple it will be, it supposes developers following some paradigms or
programming idioms/patterns. But SQL on the other side, is the only existing language that
erases the distributed coding logic: we just write SQLs.


I definitely believe HAWQ could be one of the best SQL engines on Hadoop ecosystem with all
of our collaborative effort including HAWQ users, HAWQ developers, HDB custormers, Pivotal
FTEs, HAWQ competitors, Apache mentors and so on. Look
 forward to hear more people with diversed background joining HAWQ family.

Hi, All,


My name is LinWen. I joined Pivotal HAWQ Beijing team since November, 2014. Before that, I
am an engineer of VMware.

I have implemented some features for HAWQ, like new fault tolerance service, libyarn, etc.

I believe HAWQ can be the best SQL on Hadoop engine with our joint effort.

Hello everyone,


Glad to know everybody here:)   


I'm Lili Ma, from Pivotal HAWQ R&D team in Beijing. I have been focusing on HAWQ development
and product management since 2012 when I joined Pivotal. I experienced and contributed in
HAWQ's all growth path, from birth, Alpha, 1.X, 2.0... 


My main covering fields about HAWQ include three parts: 1) Storage such as internal table
storage, HAWQ Input/OutputFormat, hawq extract/register,etc 2) Dispatcher and interconnect
3) Security including Ranger integration, Kerberos and


Before Pivotal, I worked at IBM for more than 2 years and focused on providing data service
inside of our public cloud provision. The data service includes RDS(relational data service)
which can provision a distributed relational database
 based on DB2 Federation, and NOSQL service which is based on HBase.


I believe HAWQ can become more successful with our joint effort!  Welcome to reach me or
this mail list for any HAWQ or other kinds of issues :)

I will add to the email flow…


I am Dan Baskette, I am the Director of Tech Marketing for Pivotal and cover Pivotal HDB/Apache
HAWQ, Pivotal Greenplum Database, and Apache MADlib.   I started
 my career at Sun Microsystems, and have been working for EMC/Greenplum and now Pivotal since
2000….a LONG time in quite a number of roles.   I was part of the team that launched Greenplum’s
first Hadoop distribution and was around for the birth of HAWQ or
 as we called it when it was in it’s infancy…. GOH or Greenplum on Hadoop.   I have been
actively running some webcasts on various HAWQ how-to topics for Hortonworks, so you can check
those out on their site.  


Hoping this community really takes off in a big way!

Hi All,


Great for Gregory to start the thread that people can know each other much better, at least
in Apache HAWQ community!


I am Ruilong Huo and I am from HDB/HAWQ engineering team in Pivotal. I am from Teradata and
joined Pivotal after that. It's my honor to be part of HAWQ project at its early stage. I
am a fan of RDBMS (especially MPP database), big data,
 and cloud technology that changes the IT infrastructure of the enterprises and helps to do
information transformation in a very large extent.


I hope that with joint effort from hawq community, it will become even greater product in
big data area, especially in SQL-on-Hadoop category.

Best regards, 

Ruilong Huo

Hello all,


I'm Bob, and I'm doing product marketing for HDB/HAWQ at Pivotal.  I'm new-ish here, and
not so much from a coding background as from networking.  I'm from Cisco Systems, where I
focused on analytics use cases in telecommunications, particularly
 for mobile network operators, for service assurance, customer care, and customer profiling.
 (also, as you're introducing yourselves, we'd love to hear what use cases you're involved
with, too).


About a year before I left my group at Cisco acquired an MPP database of its own -- ParStream
-- for its IoT and fog computing use cases, so it's interesting to come here and learn about
the architecture and applications of HAWQ.


I hope to help make your experience with HAWQ a good one.  If I can help in any way, please
reach out to me directly or on the list.

Greg, thanks for kicking off the roll call. Getting to know each other is super

useful (and can be fun! ;-)). I'll go next:

I am Roman (your friendly neighborhood mentor). I hang around a lot of ASF

big data projects (as a committer and a PMC member), but lately I've been

gravitating towards IoT as well (Apache Mynewt). I started my career at Sun

enterprise software ever since. I was lucky enough to get to work on

I'm here to help as much as I can to make sure that this community evolves into
