📣 Next DataHub town hall meeting on January 15th, 9am-10am PDT (convert to your local time)
✨ Latest Update:
DataHub is LinkedIn's generalized metadata search & discovery tool. Read about the architectures of different metadata systems and why DataHub excels here. Also read our LinkedIn Engineering blog post, check out our Strata presentation and watch our Crunch Conference Talk. You should also visit DataHub Architecture to get a better understanding of how DataHub is implemented and DataHub Onboarding Guide to understand how to extend DataHub for your own use cases.
Please follow the DataHub Quickstart Guide to get a copy of DataHub up & running locally using Docker. As the guide assumes some basic knowledge of Docker, we'd recommend you to go through the "Hello World" example of A Docker Tutorial for Beginners if Docker is completely foreign to you.
