At Automattic, our deep appreciation for open source software is evident through our active contributions, with a primary focus on WordPress. Recently, we integrated Apache Superset, to help support our intricate data visualization needs. One notable achievement includes the automation of dataset creation, a solution that not only resolved an issue but also enhanced our data discoverability.
The Data Docs is Automattic's new home made data discoverability solution. It collects and publishes our datasets' metadata to WordPress so it is accessible and searchable by our users. Here we describe the idea from its conception and explain how it works.
