We define community broadly at MapR. Our community is not only connecting in the new Converge Community but also at Meetups, events, on social media, in the MapR Blog, and in other online forums. Each week we will publish a roundup of new and popular content from various sources that will help you put data technology to work.
Join the conversation -- since the launch of the new community on March 7th, 1840 people from 74 countries have joined and are connecting directly with each other to solve problems and answer questions together.
Join by April 30 to get the 1st badge.
We know you are smart and have much to share. The community needs your questions, answers and ideas, so login to create a community account. Tips for Getting Started in the Converge Community
