For those of you who are new to ETL, you will be amazed at what can be done merging, joining, filtering, mapping, reading, writing and transforming data. You can build very simple things in minutes but also set up some monstrous data transformation scenarios.
Transformation can be as simple as this (which is reading data, mapping to to a new data format and then writing that out).
But you can perform highly complex ones as well and even these can be chained together and fed into other graphs.
If you master the basics that we will cover here, then mastering the complex ones will come very much easier. This Quick Start Guide is my attempt to shorten the time needed to get to grips with Clover and start producing real world data transformation. This is not a manual nor a tutorial nor a reference guide and it is designed to be read completely. Don't leave anything out and it will save you a load of time.
