Pat McDonough
Director, Client Solutions, Databricks

Pat McDonough has been an avid proponent and user of open source since the days when the average corporation still thought it was a crazy idea to use it for legitimate business. For the last half decade, he’s been working at companies built around open source, helping their customers build platform solutions for applications, integration, and big data. Pat works at Databricks with the core team from the Apache Spark project, working every day to grow the Spark community and user base.
