The best part of summertime is being able to step back from the hectic day-to-day activities most of us get mired down in throughout the year, and take up a new activity we find exciting, challenging and fun!  Knowing that developers like to keep their minds constantly engaged—no matter if they’re on vacation or not—the team at Talend wants to make it easier for developers to familiarize themselves and master some of the more cutting-edge technologies this summer.

 

Starting Tuesday, July 18th and running through September, we’ll be live streaming Talend demos, looking at ways to connect Talend to Amazon’s Alexa API to replicating tables from MySQL and offloading data into the cloud on Talend’s Facebook channel. We’re calling this our “Summer of Open Source” series and anyone and everyone is invited to tune in every other Tuesday throughout the Summer to learn new skills, ask questions of Big Data and Cloud experts, collaborate with peers on project challenges in order to find solutions, etc.

 

The new series will be hosted by Nick Piette and Mark Balkenende. They’ll bring the demos (and some prizes), and all you need to bring are your ideas, your open source projects, key questions and your computer.

 

Talend’s Summer of Open Source Schedule is as follows:
