There are a lot of places where a talented developer can go, especially in the Bay Area, notes Herb Cunitz, president of Hortonworks, a company that helps enterprises integrate Apache Hadoop. Being an open source company working on big data questions gives Hortonworks a natural advantage for software engineers who want to work on the cutting edge, he says.

"We believe an open source community, if stewarded and led by the right people, can out-innovate any individual technology company at any time," he says.
