Jekyll boooh, hugo yeah!

Not that long ago I migrated my blog to github pages using Jekyll. Jekyll is a static website generator. You write some intermediate markdown pages, cheat some markup and the generator will build the static website for you, rss feeds, navigation and the whole shebang included. BUT the sm-meister that wrote Jekyll went through some hard, breaking and annoying changes. Probably very sound changes, but I want something that works, takes little effort to maintain, yet slightly more appealing than »

Update: First pentaho nl meetup!

Tools Dashboards are Awesome! Julien Hofstede This presentation showed some techniques to make development of the dashboards easier like reusable components and global settings. And even to create your own component! Take the step beyond CDE and leverage the full power of CDF! No knowledge or experience with CDF? No worries! It will for sure help you to understand the concept of CDF better. Julien also demo-ed a lot, styling a set of components in an instant just by implementing a standard layout, and reusing that in several graphs extending that standard layout! »

First pentaho nl meetup!

Busy times, so with a slight delay a recap of our very first pentaho NL meetup. ReelMetrics supplied a nice venue for this first meetup, took care off much appreciated beers and pizza’s. After these refreshments we had some nice talks covering a wide range of functionalities within the Pentaho ecosphere. Intro From a yearly gathering somewhere in Europe, why not do a dutch equivalent every couple of months?! As open-source is thriving, community initiatives become even more important, and more than enough people doing Pentaho stuff in The Netherlands, so we gave it a try! »

From blogspot to github.io

My blogspot blog has been dead for years, not good! There wasn’t much to blah about, also writing something technical on blogspot with nice formating like… { "id": "/pentaho/biserver/biserver.1.2", "cpus": 0.25, "mem": 1024.0, "instances": 1, "container": { "type": "DOCKER", "docker": { "image": "pentaho/biserver:1.2", "network": "BRIDGE", "portMappings": [{ "containerPort": 8080, "hostPort": 0, "servicePort": 0, "protocol": "tcp" }] } }, "healthChecks": [ { "protocol": "HTTP", "path": "/_status", "portIndex": 0, "gracePeriodSeconds": 200, "intervalSeconds": 10, "timeoutSeconds": 5, "maxConsecutiveFailures": 3 } ] } … makes you wanna shoot yourself and burry that blog far far away. »

Pentaho NL Usergroup!

Last weekend the European Pentaho User meetup #pcm15 was held in London. Two days of hacking, technical talks and beer was the perfect recipe to make a great meeting. We had great talks, and I caught up with some Dutch colleagues and we concluded there should be some local NL followup to this community initiative! So here it is, a Pentaho NL Usergroup, and it would not be a meetup if there wasn’t any tweettweet… »
