FoundationDB, One Year LaterPublished April 19, 2019
Happy birthday, FoundationDB! One year ago today, FoundationDB was open sourced. Since then, we've seen tremendous growth in the open source community, and wanted to take this time to recognize the community and their contributions. Thank you all for your interest and participation in the project.
Recap of the last year
The project has grown tremendously in one year. After the release of the key value store, we followed-up with the release of two layers to support new data models:
- FoundationDB Record Layer [Announcement][GitHub][Paper]
- FoundationDB Document Layer [Announcement][GitHub]
During that time, a larger ecosystem has begun to emerge including layer development from the community. For example:
- JanusGraph Storage Adapter [GitHub][FDB Summit talk]
- HashiCorp Vault Storage Backend [Documentation]
- ZooKeeper [Forum Post][GitHub]
The numbers speak for themselves:
Lastly, we held our first community conference, FoundationDB Summit, welcoming 175 registered attendees and organized in partnership with the CNCF. We put together a roundup of videos from the conference, and we look forward to future conferences and community events.
Get involved in the community
We're committed to building an open community around the FoundationDB project, and now is a great time to get involved. Please see the Getting Started guide for the basics of how to install, use, and develop against FoundationDB. And our community forums are a great place to ask both user and developer questions.
