Converge Community Roundup - May 25, 2016

Blog Post created by maprcommunity Employee on May 25, 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. Twice a month we publish a roundup of new and popular content from various sources that will help you put data technology to work.
