Richard Hall

With more than 10 years of data integration consulting experience (many of which having been spent implementing Talend), Richard really knows his stuff. He’s provided solutions for companies on 6 of the 7 continents and has consulted across many different market verticals. Richard is a keen advocate of open source software, which is one of the reasons he first joined Talend in 2012. He is also a firm believer in engaging developers in “cool ways”, which is why he looks for opportunities to demonstrate Talend’s uses with technologies found around the home. Things like hooking his Sonos sound system to Twitter via Talend, getting Google Home to call Talend web services, and controlling his TV with Talend calling universal plug and play services, are a handful of examples. Prior to 2019, Richard had been running his own business providing Talend solutions. During that time he became a prominent contributor on Talend Community, providing both examples of how to solve business problems and also how to do some of the cool stuff mentioned above. In 2019 he was invited to return to Talend as the Technical Community Manager.
