Converge Community Roundup - April 20, 2016

Blog Post created by maprcommunity Employee on Apr 20, 2016

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 publish a roundup of new and popular content from various sources that will help you put data technology to work.
