At this month’s meetup, we:
Learned more about how to use GX with AWS S3 and Pandas for data validation
Heard about the v0.16 release, which includes the fluent method of configuring Datasources
Saw a demo of this new fluent way of configureing Datasources

Feature demo: Using GX with AWS S3 and Pandas (part II)
Ruben, a developer advocate at GX, covered the second part of how to use our new set of end-to-end integration guides for AWS with a live demo. In today’s demo, Ruben walked us through how to profile data, validate data, and generate the Data Docs site with results in S3:
GX’s product manager, Tal, shared what’s in this release: fluent-configuration Datasources!
Fluent-config Datasources will make it simpler to get started with GX by making it possible to set up a Datasource with just a couple of lines of code. Benefits include:
Makes working with multiple batches easy
Building and contributing new Datasources is a pleasure
Compatibility with the current Datasources, no breaking changes
Feature demo: new fluent method of configuring Datasources
Next, Ruben was back to demo the new fluent method of configuring Datasources. He showed how you need just a few lines of code to get started. He shared his Jupyter Notebooks (file system, AWS S3), showing how simple it is to connect a Datasource. Once connected, you can create an expectation suite and add a validator, create a checkpoint and run it, and review the Data Docs. We’re very excited about this new feature and can’t wait for you to try it!
We’re especially interested in hearing about your experience with fluent-config Datasources! If you have thoughts you’d like to share or any questions, please contact @Tal in the GX Slack. Your feedback will be important in prioritizing future work on fluent-config Datasources.
