Kia ora koutou,
This month we have a spotlight on Open Source, our team are passionate about open – Open Data, Open Standards and Open Source. I first worked on an Open Source Linux kernel back in 1989 (showing my age) so have enjoyed watching this space mature and evolve from niche to mainstream.
What we’ve written
Spotlight on… Open Source
The Open Source data space is maturing rapidly providing customers with great alternatives to the age old challenge of vendor lock-in. As a team we embrace Open Source by contributing to projects, advising customers on options and have released our own IP under Open Source licenses. You can read more of our Open Source blogs here.
What is MongoDB and what does it do?
Apache Superset – so darn awesome
Supporting visualisation, data exploration and collaborations, Superset was built from the ground and open sourced by the folks at Airbnb. Read Thomas’ blog for a walk through of the install and a whole lot more.
Getting started with OrientDB
In this blog, our Senior Developer Kate Loguteva talks through the steps and considerations she took to get started with OrientDB for the full NoSQL experience.
What we’re up to
This is Alison, she makes sense out of data, builds reports and dashboards, designs data warehouses and collects business requirements.
She loves numbers, playing with data and turning something seemingly incomprehensible into usable information.
Ali loves to bake and will produce something amazing for the office bake-off, which she’ll carefully balance on her bike during the morning commute.
Connect with Alison Rowe on LinkedIn.
