Happy Holidays from All of Us at Voltron Data

Dec 23, 2021

As our #twelvedaysofarrow social media celebration of the Apache Arrow developer community comes to a close, the Voltron Data team would like to extend our best wishes to everyone within the Apache Arrow Open Source community. We hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season and new year.

Apache Arrow has become a go-to ecosystem for fast, efficient, and interoperable data analytics. The Apache Arrow developer community is growing, now with over 650 contributors, as are the number of users of the 12 Arrow language libraries. Arrow’s Python library, pyarrow, was downloaded 38 million times in October 2021—an accelerating trend that we think will continue in 2022 and beyond.
