Big thank you to the 200 participants from 40 different countries who made Pentaho Community Meeting a great event!
You can find a summary of all presentations in our blog.
Happy birthday! Pentaho Community Meeting PCM17 celebrated its 10th anniversary this November with a 3-days event full of presentations and networking. And it-novum had the honor to host the event together with Pentaho. PCM17 took place in Mainz where everything started in 2008. Mainz is centrally located and just a 20 minutes train ride away from Frankfurt international airport.
Pentaho Community Meeting is an informal gathering for Pentaho users from around the world. We meet to discuss the latest and greatest in Pentaho products and exciting geek stuff (techie track) as well as best practices of Pentaho implementations and successful projects (business track).
PCM17 is open to everyone who does something with Pentaho (development, extensions, implementation) or plans to do data integration, analytics or big data with Pentaho. Several Pentaho folks – architects, designers, product managers – will share their latest developments with us.
The event is community-oriented and open-minded. There’s room for networking and exchanging ideas and experiences. Participants are free to break off into groups and work together.
