Last nights Pentaho London Usergroup, and upcoming labs session

Last night we held our Q2 Pentaho London usergroup at the ever excellent skillsmatter.  Actually that may be the last time we go there as they are moving to a stunning new venue in the next few weeks, yay!

Anyway we had a great night, you can see the talks here:

And as discussed details about PCM London can be found here:

As well as meeting a guy from Cern there was another guy interested in PDI, Spark and R. It was a pleasure to meet all the regulars as well as quite a few new faces.  The discussion continued down the pub as ever (and ahem – started in the pub too) and we then got to wait many many hours for our food at Pizza “express”. Pfft.

The next event is not scheduled yet – however we do have a plan. We won’t be doing talks, instead we’ll be doing labs.  So how will this work?

Well there will be tickets available for you to bring your problem/solution to a Pentaho expert to discuss, review and resolve the issue.  You’ll be expected to show your issue, and then we’ll have a tech discussion and possibly even build a solution.

At the same time, you’ll be expected to share your experience with others.  So you’ll probably need to make sure there’s no personal data on display!

There’ll probably just be 2 sessions for each pillar of the stack and the sessions will run in parallel. The pillars covered will be Mondrian, PDI, Reporting and cTools.  We may do a Weka session too if there is interest.

So; If people think this is a good idea, we’ll setup a ticket system which:

a) allows you to get a ticket to present to an expert

b) allows you to get a ticket to watch a particular session.

Feedback please…  Would this work at PLUG?
