Data connectors typically take weeks or even months to build. Between authentication issues to third-party systems and figuring out the shape of the data you’re interacting with, it’s easy to understand why many translation tech businesses and language service providers shy away from this expensive piece of software development. In this presentation, we will create a fully functional data connector — from scratch — and without writing any software code. Get your stopwatch ready, this is going to be fast!

Takeaways: Attendees will learn that although each data source is unique, there are common scenarios that allow us to create abstract use cases; every connector does not need to be coded over and over again. It can be configured in a recipe; connector recipes are a great way to incrementally improve functionality and keep ongoing maintenance costs down.
