Hi All,

I'm Hongxu Ma and just joined Pivotal China two months ago. Before Pivotal, I worked in Baidu
many years and focused on search and infrastructure.
I am a open source fan, and worked on libhdfs3, ranger integrations in HAWQ team now.

Welcome to discuss with me and let's make HAWQ better!

Hi All,

My name is Yi Jin, I am currently working for Pivotal in Sydney Australia as a committer of
Apache HAWQ. I designed and developed new resource manager including resource queue ddl interface,
fault tolerant cluster resource management, YARN integration and on-demand query resource
consumption management.

Before working on HAWQ in Pivotal, I used to work for IBM as a developer of DB2 LUW (Linux,
Unix, Windows) mainly in parser, runtime components for its data warehouse features, and then
I did and verified some technical research work for automatically optimizing critical database
replication in the core banking HA and DR solution (high availability and disaster recovery)
which has been delivered by IBM upon DB2 z/OS in ICBC the largest bank in China known as its
Active-Active banking HADR solution.

Based on my work in HAWQ for distributed resource management, I am now pushing myself to every
components of Apache HAWQ to pursue more contributions to the success of Apache HAWQ. Any
really happy to have this opportunity to get known with you guys. Thank you!

Hi guys,

I started to work on Apache HAWQ ~8 months ago in Pivotal. I'm currently a committer of HAWQ.
Before this career, I mainly worked on Unix/Linux kernel along with various infrastructure
softwares in SUN and later a SV startup. Later I worked for 1+ year on an Internet company
until I found it would be interesting to work on infrastructure software which could service
more users and service them better. I'd expect to discuss with anyone who is interested in
any system software related topics (besides HAWQ of course:-))

Hi, All,

My name is Hubert Zhang. I worked on HAWQ resource negotiator and data locality feature and
now working on HAWQ integrated with Apache Ranger.

For any details related to the upper features and questions about HAWQ, please feel free to
contact me.

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<https://github.com/apache/incubator-hawq/commits?author=xunzhang>
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<http://paracel.io/> 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<http://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 LDAP.

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 :)


2016-12-15 4:45 GMT+08:00 Dan Baskette <dbbaskette@gmail.com<mailto:dbbaskette@gmail.com>>:
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
microsystems back at a time when Linux  wasn't even 1.x and I've been doing
enterprise software ever since. I was lucky enough to get to work on
the original
Hadoop team at Yahoo! and fall in love with not one but two elephants (Hadoop
and Postgres). Recently I've assumed a position of VP of Technology at ODPi
and I'm still hoping to MHGA! My secret weapon is Apache Bigtop (which
and I'm not afraid to use it!

I'm here to help as much as I can to make sure that this community evolves into
a vibrant, self-governed, exciting place worthy of being a top level
project (TLP)
at ASF. If you have any questions or ideas that you may want to bounce off of
me -- please don't hesitate to reach out directly or on the mailing list.

> Dear HAWQs,
> I thought it would be fun to get to know some of the other people in the community.
> My name is Greg Chase and I run community development for Pivotal for big data open source
communities that Pivotal contributes to.
> Some of you may have seen my frequent emails about virtual events I help organize for
user and contributor education.
> Not so long ago, I was in charge of product marketing for an in-memory data warehouse
named after a Hawaiian town from a three-letter acronymed German Company. We treated Hadoop
as an external table, and returning results from these queries was both slow and brittle due
to the network transfer rates.
> So I have a special appreciation of the innovation that has gone into creating Hadoop-native
HAWQ out of PostgreSQL and Greenplum.
> These days I'm much more of a marketer than a coder, but I still love hearing about the
kinds of projects that HAWQ users are involved in.
> I know we'd all love to hear more about everyone else's projects, and how you became
a HAWQ user.  So please introduce yourselves!
