Jon Udell on why data and AI teams should explore Steampipe.
Jon Udell is community lead for Steampipe, an open-source tool that populates a database table with data retrieved from APIs. They use Postgres, which means that data is easy to explore and retrieve using SQL. The list of plugins includes popular sites like GitHub and Hackernews, web services like AWS and Azure, data sources like Airtable, Google sheets, CSV files and more. Teams are always looking for new sources of data, and Steampipe’s growing collection is a welcome addition.
