GoodData Unveils VS Code Plugin, Accelerates Analytics as Code Philosophy


New feature embraces “as code” concept, enabling enhanced analytics development and collaboration.

San Francisco, August 8, 2023 — GoodData, the leader in cloud-based data and analytics, today unveiled its latest innovation, GoodData for VS Code. This new update is designed to revolutionize the way analytical solutions are developed and managed, embracing the Everything as Code philosophy. It promises to bring the power of software engineering workflow to the realm of analytics, delivering versioning, collaboration, and automation benefits to analytics and DevOps engineers alike.

Embracing a software engineering workflow for analytics delivers multiple benefits:

  • Automation: Automating solutions defined "as code" simplifies deployment and quality control, with test automation becoming a must-have in modern software solutions.
  • Collaboration: Collaborative coding platforms like GitHub or GitLab enable seamless teamwork through features like Pull Requests and Code Reviews.
  • Governance: With Analytics as Code, every iteration of a solution is securely stored and revertible. Each change comes with detailed notes, providing a comprehensive audit trail.

GoodData has been a pioneer in supporting the "as code" approach for analytics through its Declarative API, prioritizing deployment and automation. Now, the company is proud to announce the release of GoodData for VS Code, empowering developers with a user-friendly and efficient environment for analytics development.

GoodData for VS Code is built with a focus on simplicity and efficiency, minimizing the learning curve for users. By employing YAML as the base language for analytics, the extension ensures ease of use and familiarity. Additionally, GoodData has chosen VS Code for its exceptional user experience, extensibility, and built-in Git user interface.

With the GoodData VS Code extension, analytics engineers can experience a seamless day-to-day workflow, fully leveraging the Analytics as Code approach.

"The launch of our VS Code plugin is yet another step in our mission to empower analytics engineers with Analytics as Code, equipping them with an efficient, user-friendly environment for analytics development," said Ryan Dolley, VP of Product Strategy at GoodData.
