This Reporting SDK is a Python Client app to download reporting data from the Pluralsight API. The Pluralsight platform service allows you to extract data via the Pluralsight Rest API for Users, Course Completion, Course Usage and Course Catalog. It enables you with accessibility and automation of data that requires that you authenticate using an API token. The Pluralsight API returns a list of users on the account, of courses that users have completed in the last year, course usage for users in the last year and the latest course catalog in CSV format. Pluralsight provides access to a learning solution platform to gain knowledge of technology and training for skills in areas like cloud, mobile, security and data.

Yahoo has just released a major update to YQL, the Yahoo Query Language platform they first launched late last year as part of their Yahoo Open Strategy. YQL is a SQL-like programming interface to all Yahoo data that can also support non-Yahoo data as well (think of queries that look like: select id from flickr.photos.search where text='car'). This week's release adds a set of new features called Yahoo Execute which begin putting in place more pieces of a powerful cloud-based development platform.
