What led you to your project idea(s)?
When I first started at Cloudera in 2011, I had a fairly vague job description, no real responsibilities, and wasn’t all that familiar with the Apache Hadoop stack, so I started working on various pet projects in order to learn more about the tools and the use cases in domains like healthcare and energy.

Meet the Project Founder: Doug Cutting (First in a Series)

ToddAt Cloudera, there is a long and proud tradition of employees creating new open source projects intended to help fill gaps in platform functionality (in addition to hiring new employees who have done so in the past). In fact, more than a dozen ecosystem projects — including Apache Hadoop itself — were founded by Clouderans, more than can be attributed to employees of any other single company. Cloudera was also the first vendor to ship most of those projects as enterprise-ready bits inside its platform.

We thought you might be interested in meeting some of them over the next few months, in a new “Meet the Project Founder” series. It’s only appropriate that we begin with Doug Cutting himself – Cloudera’s chief architect and the quadruple-threat founder of Apache Lucene, Apache Nutch, Apache Hadoop, and Apache Avro.
