Thank you!

“By developers for developers” has been our internal motto since the first lines of ArangoDB code. Building an open-source project at such level of complexity and at a market competitive standard, undoubtedly puts a lot of pressure and almost solely relies on the support and trust of the community.

Every victory counts, be it small appreciation or big success – it’s what gives us inspiration and keeps us going forward. A while ago we’ve been having one of those rainy gray days here in Cologne. Receiving over 10 stars put a smile on faces of our whole team, motivating us to hack harder, brainstorm, bug fix, build, release…

Today we have reached 4000 stars mark on GitHub! Read more

01GeneralTags: ,

Today we are glad to announce the start of ArangoDB Online meetup. As our international open-source community is growing with every passing day, we keep getting requests from members around the world on doing a tech meet or a short demo on ArangoDB. Quite a few members have already taken the initiative of presenting at conferences and local meetups – big “thank you” for that! Adding to that effort, it’s high time that we all moved to that one place where we can all connect and everyone has a chance to give/ participate in a talk. And what better way is there to bring us all together than meeting online? Read more

ArangoDB 2016 – A Year in Review

00GeneralTags: ,

Important Steps this Year

2016 is about to see its final days and things are calming down, so Frank and I thought about the year that lies behind us. It was a really exciting year for the whole ArangoDB project and for us as founders. In 2016 we saw our team doubling in size, ArangoDB 3 series got launched and we became part of the Target Partners family. Many other great things happened this year and with this post we want to take the chance to say “Thank you” to all our supporters.

For the whole team it was and is super motivating to see that practically the same growth we experienced team-wise happened to the ArangoDB community. Exceeding the 3000 stargazer landmark right before Christmas was indeed a nice present, but it also reminds us that more and more people rely on what we create. Read more

Introducing ArangoDB snapcraft.io Packages

00Community, GeneralTags:

ArangoDB Packaging

With ArangoDB 3.0 we reworked the build process to be based completely on cmake. The packaging was partly done using cpack (Windows, Mac), for the rest regular packaging scripts on the SuSE OBS were used. With ArangoDB 3.1 we reworked all packaging to be included in the ArangoDB Source code and use CPack. Users can now easily use that to build their own Packages from the source, as we do with Jenkins. Community member Artur Janke (@servusoft) contributed the new ubuntu snap packaging assisted by Michael Hall (@mhall119). Big thanks for that!

Learn ArangoDB while contributing

00Community, GeneralTags: ,

We are fortunate to live in an open-source world with a fairly large international community of users and contributors, which has been only growing more and more in the past year. (Big thanks for that, by the way 😉 ) Especially that we have recently received quite a few requests on how one can contribute to ArangoDB in an easy and quick way, we have decided that the time has come to get closer to our community and get even more involved.

A lot of great ideas came up during a chat with some of our long-term users on how we could improve on that front. Among all others, the most straightforward one is asking the community for some help and support on GitHub. So we took a bit of time to go through open issues and selected a few now tagged ‘Help Wanted’. Here is a selection of easy tasks that will get you started contributing to ArangoDB with code or ideas and concepts for features. It is only a few to start with, but if you want to get involved we would appreciate your helping hand! Read more

Webinar: ArangoDB and DC/OS
Graph, Documents in a scalable Distributed Data-Store

00GeneralTags: ,

Wednesday, October 26th

DC/OS provides ArangoDB with exactly the infrastructure it needs for implementing a modern distributed stateful service. Join this upcoming webinar to learn how DC/OS quickly and easily deploys ArangoDB to provide scaling and fault tolerance with automatic replacement of failed components. While DC/OS supplies the management of resources and hence allows multiple services to share a common infrastructure, ArangoDB provides a modern persistence layer with its multi-model, fault-tolerant datastore.
