Stephen Few Student Performance Dashboard using BIRT

Posted by mblock , 10 May 2013 - - - - - - · 7988 views

Stephen Few is a visualization expert and the author of some books on the topic including 'Show Me the Numbers'

Last year he had a competion to design a dashboard on class performance based on data he provided. The winner was announce last year ( http://www.perceptua...om/blog/?p=1374 ). I was challenged by my manager to build the winning dashboard from the competition last year in BIRT (Disclaimer: I am an Actuate employee) as Stephen Few was presenting at our customer days. As one would expect I was not given much warning (asked Monday night, needed to deliver by Wednesday). As I always love a challenge of course I said no problem. Below is a link to a live report and an image of the result.

Stephen has published his own solution ( http://www.perceptua...om/blog/?p=1466 ). I thought I would build that too (was a bit more challenging). Again below is a link to a live reportand an image of the result.

BIRT at CeBIT 2010

Posted by mblock , 24 February 2010 - - - - - - · 6633 views

I'm happy to say that Actuate and a few other Eclipse Foundation companies will be at CeBIT this year. The show is happening from March 2nd to 6th in Hannover, Germany. If you are in the area, please stop by the Eclipse Island, Booth #D38 in the Open Source Park, Hall 2. You can see who else is in the booth here http://wiki.eclipse.org/CeBIT2010.

As usual, we will be showing off some cool things you can do with BIRT. Actuate is also hosting a day-long session focused exclusively on BIRT during the show. It takes place from 9:30 to 14:30 on Thursday March 4th. Not registered for CeBIT? That's OK because if you register for the BIRT session at http://www.actuate.com/ger/info/becom-q110gerbirtcebit/, we'll give you a free day pass for the whole show.

I had a great time meeting members of the BIRT Community at last month's UK BIRT User Group and last years Eclipse Summit Europe, so I am looking forward to meeting more of you in Hannover.
