More than 100 developers worldwide are finding and stamping out bugs in Hadoop as part of today's global Apache Hadoop Global Bug Bash -- which stretches across India, Japan, the United Kingdom and Silicon Valley.

On the one hand, the Hadoop market is filled with fiercely competitive distributions from the likes of Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and more. But the open-source mindset -- developers contributing back to Apache Software Foundation community -- remains healthy.

Developers from Cloudera, Pivotal, Altiscale, Huawei, Intel, Hortonworks, IBM, Microsoft, Yahoo and others are participating in today's Bug Bash, which the Apache Software Foundation organized. The event will wrap at Altiscale's offices in Silicon Valley.

Code quality is particularly important for Hadoop, which is emerging as a mission-critical platform for big data applications -- both on-premises and in the cloud.

The global Hadoop market will enjoy a 58.2 percent compound annual growth rate from 2013 to 2020 -- reaching $50.2 billion by that time, according to Allied Market Research.
