What have these three fantastic products in common?
- Proto, an application for building “desktop mashups”;
- Kettle, a visual ETL design tool;
- Yahoo Pipes;
… you guessed it, pipes. The classic idea of the unix pipe has been given a new life in these three easy-to-use products, but this time the target audience is not the sysadmins and professional programmers of the past, this is programming for the masses.
Oh, in case you really were looking for Danny Boy.
