Looking for someone? There are many ways to find them:


  • Try a search. You can enter someone's name right in the search box in the user bar. You can also search for an expertise and MapR Community will find any colleagues matching that skill.
  • Don't worry if you don't find any results matching a person. All content in MapR Community is written by people so sometimes the best way to find someone is to find something they wrote and link up with them that way.
  • Try browsing for people. MapR Community has a powerful interface to browse and discover people you work with. Just click "Browse > People" in the top navigation. If you're looking for Joe at MapR Technologies you can quickly drill down to view all people with MapR Technologies listed as the company (filter by company) with names beginning with "J". By default you'll see people you're following, but you can click All to browse the entire community.
  • Try filtering by tags. Tags unify content and people. Often, you might want to find someone based on a keyword. The tags interface is a great way to jump in and find people.
