Community Spotlight

Nie Dianhui used to be a serial entrepreneur, and currently leads a R&D team in the gaming company. He is very passionate about the open source community, and came across TiKV in 2018 when he was learning Rust language. After he raised the first PR in the Coprocessor subproject of TiKV, he has gradually deepened his understanding of the project, and grew into a TiKV Committer in 2019.

The TiKV project is a good place to start, with the issue descriptions and labels very clearly provided. My overall impression of the TiDB community is – very professional, and very human.

Alex Chi is a computer science student at Shanghai Jiaotong University. He started writing code in third grade and wrote extensively in Python and JavaScript in high school. In the second semester of his sophomore year, he joined CNCF’s TiKV community by participating in the Community Bridge mentoring program. Guided by his community mentor, he optimized the entire computational framework of TiDB in three months and set a record for the fastest Committer promotion in the TiKV history.

I had a wonderful time working with the TiKV project. My mentors are really experienced, and could always provide foresightful advice on making this project better. The TiKV community is very friendly.
