Talend Solution Templates – Try on your superhero suit
Hello Talend Superheroes!!! Hope all of you are enjoying your time in Talend realm playing with different types of data. Many of you are old-timers of Talend, but everyday new developers are happily joining the band to learn about various superpowers related to data. Like any superhero movie, there is a learning curve to understand and manage the newly acquired capabilities the right way. As Uncle Ben said, “With great power come great responsibility.” Being an Avenger fan, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Spidey Suit given to Peter Parker so that he can hone his newly acquired superpowers in a controlled manner ?
