Another GUI, another blog


First off, Happy New Year from me in France! I’m out in Les Arcs, skiing for the week (best way to start the year back at work if you ask me!!).

So, in my round up of 2016, I promised you a look at a blog written by one of the guys on my team at Atheon. Vinit has written in his blog about another GUI which can interface with Exasol. An alternative to Exaplus if you will. And, best of all it comes with intellisense! I’ll let Vinit tell you the rest over at his blog optimumretrieval.



Breakfast with Exasol


Exasol are putting on an event in central London on the 7th October 2016 for you to get to know more about them.

Starting with breakfast at the Eight Members Club in Moorgate, they’ll be hosting great speakers from King (Andy Done) and Adidas, discussing how they make the most out of their data with Exasol. After the talks there is a networking session, for you to network with existing and prospective Exasol users.

Find out more about the event and register to attend for free here.

The talks were great at exaxp16, and I’d recommend giving it a go if you’re interested in Exasol.


Exasol in my backpack

Exasol turned out to be quite interested in the mini cluster that I developed and talked about here.

So much so, that my cluster has now been christened as “Exasol in my backpack”, and featured:

It’s great to know that people are interested in the stuff I’m building and sharing. As always, if you’d like to know more, please get in touch.



Learn just about anything…for free!


I first saw this link on facebook on the I fucking love science page the other day.

“The idea is simple: to publish all of our course materials online and make them widely available to everyone.”
Dick K.P. Yue, Professor, MIT School of Engineering (

MIT made all of their course content and recommended reading available online for free!

This could open up doors to learning, and potential new career paths, for so many people priced out of a university education. For me it serves as a great opportunity to explore areas of learning that were simply not available when I was at university.

MIT are looking for donations on their site to fund the OpenCourseWare project, with donations currently being matched by MathWorks.
