Google Goodies and Lego

Dear Kettle friends,

Will Gorman and Mike D’Amour, Senior Developers at Pentaho, are presenting Pentaho’s Google integration work at the Google I/O Developer Conference. (at the Sandbox area to be specific)   Yesterday, Pentaho announced that much.

Here are a few of the integration points:

  • Google maps dashboard (available in the Pentaho BI server you can download)
  • A new Google Docs step was created for Pentaho Data Integration Enterprise Edition
  • Running (AVI, 30MB) the Pentaho BI server on Android
  • A new Google Analytics step was created for Pentaho Data Integration Enterprise Edition
  • Since version 2.0, the Pentaho BI server depends heavily on Google Web Toolkit (GWT)

To top that off, Will twittered about this new Lego bar-chart + logo they created for the conference:

UPDATE: now with building instructions and action video!

We are all soooo proud of them!

Until next time,

Matt
