Demo Day Recap: 2021-04-09

The first Demo Day of April was a jam-packed and an absolute blast! If you missed it, the recording of the livestream is available on the Meltano YouTube channel.

Taylor briefly shared some of the recent documentation updates and blog posts including the SDK Launch, our interpretation of the Singer Spec, and our vision for the future of Meltano.

AJ then shared improvements to the SDK including the release of v0.1.1, the cookiecutter template, and the dev guide.

Ken Payne from Tails.com shared how he’s used the Singer SDK to build a tap to pull data from Tableau. This is a great example of how the SDK simplifies the code required to build a high quality tap.

We also had Tulkin from Applied Labs talk about their announcement of Singerly, which is a hosted platform for Meltano and Airflow. That led to some discussion on the details of Singerly including environment variables and metrics options. There was also a discussion of the upcoming SingerHub.

Lastly, Ken shared a bit about how they deploy Meltano. We plan to have him back to dive in deeper on this topic.

Overall, this was a great Demo Day and we look forward to hosting many more of these. We’re always listening to feedback and looking for ways to improve, so please contribute to any issue within the main project or chat with us on Slack if that’s more your style. Thank you to everyone who joined the livestream!
