ApacheCon NA 2010
John Sichi recently became an Apache Hadoop committer as part of his work on the Hive project at Facebook, where he tries to avoid being pulverized by petabytes of data. Before that, he has worked for a number of startups in the database industry, including a co-founder role at on-demand business intelligence pioneer LucidEra. Outside of Apache, John contributes to a number of other open source projects such as JGraphT, Mondrian, and LucidDB; he also serves as president of the Eigenbase Project, a non-profit foundation supporting LucidDB and related technologies. Most of what he knows which is worth knowing was learned while obtaining a BS in EECS at UC Berkeley.
