With two years passed since it made its debut, it’s time to address the “State of Cloudera’s Online Community.”
Back in 2013, Cloudera saw the need for an online peer-to-peer community in which its customers and users could interact, share knowledge, and get advice about deploying, configuring, and using the Cloudera platform. That’s when we opened the Cloudera Community. Since then, the community has grown tremendously fast by delivering unprecedented access to industry experts and big data wisdom for our users.
Which topics interested attracted the most community interest in 2015? Find out below.
It’s our annual custom to bring you a list of this blog’s most popular posts of the year. (See the 2013 and 2014 versions.) Why? Because this list reflects interests across the ecosystem; it’s one of the best passive surveys we have, actually.
As usual, when drawing conclusions, be sure to account for data skew.
The Wrangle conference was a huge hit. Look for it to return in 2016!
Wrangle, the conference for and by data science practitioners from startup to enterprise, made a noticeable splash in San Francisco last week. As the conference host and organizer, we (Cloudera) couldn’t be happier about its attendees’ happiness.

Apache Spark continues to be a major theme in the Strata + Hadoop World conference series; here are highlights at NYC next week.
Strata + Hadoop World NYC 2015 (Sept. 29-Oct. 1; if you haven’t registered yet, a 20% discount is still available) is a learning bonanza for many reasons, but this year the focus on Apache Spark and its growing importance in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem is notable.
The super-active Apache Spark community is exerting a strong gravitational pull within the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. I recently had that opportunity to ask Cloudera’s Apache Spark committers (Sean Owen, Imran Rashid [PMC], Sandy Ryza, and Marcelo Vanzin) for their perspectives about how the Spark community has worked and is working together, and the work to be done via the One Platform initiative to make the Spark stack enterprise-ready.
