The ASF had a very busy week, and held its 2-day Members' meeting (highlighted by elections for the new Board and 100+ potential new Members; votes took place using Apache STeVe). The ASF welcomed its new Board, comprising Rich Bowen, Shane Curcuru, Bertrand Delacretaz, Jim Jagielski, Chris Mattmann, David Nalley,...
The ASF is made up of more than 150 top level projects which cover a wide range of technologies. Chances are if you are looking for a rewarding experience in Open Source, you are going to find it here.
A 100% community-driven Bigdata management platform.
Bigtop is a project for the development of packaging and tests of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. The primary goal of Bigtop is to build a community around the packaging and interoperability testing of Hadoop-related projects. This includes testing at various levels (packaging, platform, runtime, upgrade, etc...) developed by a community with a focus on the system as a whole, rather than individual projects. In short we strive to be for Hadoop what Debian is to Linux.
The Apache Open Climate Workbench(OCW) is a comprehensive suite of algorithms, libraries, and interfaces designed to standardize and streamline the process of interacting with large quantities of observational data (such as is provided by the RCMED) and conducting regional climate model evaluations.
Apache Open Climate Workbench is an effort to develop software that performs climate model evaluation using model outputs from a variety of different sources (the Earth System Grid Federation, the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment, the U.S. National Climate Assessment and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program) and temporal/spatial scales with remote sensing data from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. The toolkit includes capabilities for rebinning, metrics computation and visualization.
Apache Etch provides is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent RPC-like messaging framework.
Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent framework for building and consuming network services. The Etch toolset includes a network service description language, a compiler, and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages. Etch is also transport-independent, allowing for a variety of different transports to be used based on need and circumstance. The goal of Etch is to make it simple to define small, focused services that can be easily accessed, combined, and deployed in a similar manner. With Etch, service development and consumption becomes no more difficult than library development and consumption.
