One of our new technologies, DomainExpert, has begun to really catch on. Besides the enhanced compression, DomainExpert improves overall query speed due to the reduction in decompression time. Plus, it doesn't require any DDL changes. This continually-improving technology will get further enhanced over time.
To help show the simplicity of DomainExpert, take a look at this short video. If you have any questions regarding DomainExpert, reach out on our forums.
Over the past 15 months, I proudly served as Infobright's open-source community manager. In recent months, I began looking at other options to expand my experience within the organization; given a recent move, we now are looking for our next community manager.
While I will continue to blog, vlog, attend conferences, and speak, the position requires someone to ensure that our community members have a strong voice. To that end, we are actively looking for an individual with strong database experience and business acumen. For more specifics on the role (and to apply), check out our careers website: http://www.infobright.com/Careers/community_manager/.
Many have asked, "What does a community manager do?" (I tend to get that question the most from my wife.) Long story short, the community manager educates and assists its users with technical challenges and celebrates their successes. As an example, the community manager will ensure all forum posts have proper responses. Five minutes later, they will prepare their talk for the upcoming OSCON show. Plus, the community manager heavily influences the Infobright Intern Program at the University of Illinois; the position serves as the program manager for the team.
You, as our community manager, own our open-source analytics database. From the website to the install procedure, you heavily influence how our users interact with Infobright. Honestly, it's been the most fulfilling role I've ever had with any company. The position hones your engineering, business, and leadership skills. Plus, you work with an amazing group of people.
Since you will help lead the intern program, the position requires you to be in Champaign, IL. Our office is located within the University of Illinois' Research Park incubator facility EnterpriseWorks, recently awarded the Research Park of the Year Award as well as rated one of the top ten incubators.
