Happy birthday! Pentaho Community Meeting PCM17 celebrates its 10th anniversary this November with a 3-days event full of presentations and networking. And it-novum has the honor to host the event together with Pentaho. PCM17 will take 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.
Please note that all presentations will be in English.

Jump on a school bus to have a fun sightseeing tour across beautiful Mainz and Wiesbaden. Featuring: tour guide Jens Bleuel :)
How to get to Mainz

Arrival by train: When arriving at Mainz main station (Hauptbahnhof) our venue and nearby hotels are a 10 minutes’ walk away. There are taxis available at the station if you don´t want to walk with your luggage.
Curious to see how it all started?
Have a look at some fun photos from the first PCM in 2008! And try to find out who from 2008 will again join in 2017 :)
