I’m very happy to see PentahoWorld coming soon on October 8 through 10, 2014. It is our first(!) worldwide conference for Users, Advocates and Partners of Pentaho.
After many years of Pentaho community meetings, this is a next logical step in boosting the great Pentaho story. I initiated and organized the first Penaho community meeting. It was conducted in my hometown Mainz, Germany back in 2008 and we had a great audience, a lot of information, talks and fun. Since then, it succeeded every year and will continue in the future: the next community meeting is scheduled for November 14 through 16 in Antwerp, Belgium.
BTW: By writing this, a lot of history come to my mind, so I will continue to write a bit more about history that formed and forms our future in IT, Pentaho and Big Data in the next couple of blog posts, stay tuned via my Twitter account or RSS feeds of this blog.
And for now, have a look at some details of PentahoWorld 2014:
