Cassandra Committers are the lead developers of the Apache Cassandra project and are responsible for the majority of changes. They are seen as trusted members of your community. In addition, your Apache Cassandra commiters are responsible for the review of patches, submitted by you, for inclusion into the latest versions of Cassandra. After a successful review of these patches, usually consisting of conformance to coding standards and ensuring it does not introduce any new bugs, your committers will “commit” that specific patch on behalf of the patch submitter.

Avinash Lakshman is an engineer at Facebook where he helped architect and build the Cassandra system. He was previously a distributed systems architect at Amazon where he architected and built the Dynamo system, the first enterprise ready distributed database management system based on the eventual consistency model. Dynamo stores and serves the shopping carts for all Amazon users and replaced an earlier Oracle system within Amazon that no longer met Amazon’s availability requirements.

My passion is to work on cutting-edge problems, that require the understanding of the entire stack, top to bottom. I enjoy working on technologies that require low-level knowledge of operating systems and the networking stack. Areas of interest include: distributed databases, filesystems, operating systems, client/server architecture, and fault tolerance. I want to join a team that strives to change the world.

I am an Apache Cassandra committer, a life-long programmer specializing in distributed systems at Rackspace. Past experience includes working with large-scale text and image indexes in the newspaper industry and high-volume advertisement booking software.
