My name is Andrew Hutchings (aka LinuxJedi), I'm the Lead Engineer for
MariaDB ColumnStore and will be the mentor for that project.
Thank you for your interest. I recommend starting to get familiar with
the project itself using the links Dipti mentioned.
The source code for the engine itself can be found at:
The 'develop-1.1' branch contains the current 1.1 release and 'develop'
tree contains our future release code.
mcsapi is a separate project can be found at:
We are currently only working on 'develop-1.1' of this tree.
This particular project would have you designing and developing a read
API. This should be similar to an ORM access method which connects
directly to ColumnStore processes. It only needs to do the equivalent of
'WHERE' conditions for this project, no joins/aggregates required. We
can go into more details with that later.
Once you have got ColumnStore running and have looked at the code I can
give you a couple of low-hanging-fruit tasks if you would like so that
you can get more familiar with the code.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
