The Hortonworks Community Connection provides a platform for you to engage with peers, committers, contributors, and practitioners around the world. As part of this platform we provide Community forums and discussions but this is only one part of this community platform; other features include Knowledge Base, Ideas and Articles, Meetups, and Github code gallery.
The discussions can be viewed by everyone, but to participate, you must become a member by joining and logging into HCC. Members can post questions, answer questions, and comment on content. Here is how to get started.
Benefits as a member:Membership is free, all you need to do to join the community is visit http://hortonworks.com/community and signup. Upon creation, we will send an email to your designated address with instructions to verify your account. Once you verify your email you are a member and can begin using the HCC by simply logging in. As a member, you will be able to participate in the community and earn reputation points that unlock additional functionality at each level. See FAQ for more details.
Benefits of using our company email address: If you are a customer, or just thinking of becoming a customer of ours, we recommend you use your company provided email address. If you do you will gain access to additional information and opportunities. Please be sure you have your company’s permission to use your corporate email to sign up for the HCC.
General etiquette: As with any public community, there are protocols and etiquette that we value. We want every member to uphold these Community Guidelines.
Please take this moment to digest imperative rules of engagement. Always remember that what you post is public, read by thousands. We’ll enforce zero-tolerance policy for any abuse, spamming, advertising or trolling and ask that you avoid sharing any confidential or personal information.
So be honest, be courteous, and be professional.
Below are general guidelines and best practices while engaging on this platform. While they are not comprehensive and exhaustive, when unclear or unsure, use your discretion, exercise courtesy and observe professional judgment—in diction and tone.
Articles should be technically deep and content rich. The goal of the article should be to convey knowledge to a technical audience and the article should be complete, that is it should not be a link to a webinar, youtube video etc. with zero content. All articles go into moderation and although we do not guarantee the technical accuracy of the content we do review the content to try to ensure it meets these guidelines:
Code repositories or Repos are great ways to share code snippets or whole sections of code that you find useful. Any code in these repos is covered by the license of the code as described on Github and we do not verify any of this code.When posting a repo, please make sure it is public or that you have explicit permission to share this repo (either you own it or the owner has given you explicit permission).
