**In this weekly blog series, engineering and support staff at Datameer share their favorite features in Datameer.**
I am a music buff at heart and so my favorite feature is one of more than 55+ built-in connectors to different structured and unstructured data sources — the last.fm connector. The easiest way for me to show this off to you without building a custom analysis based on my last.fm data is to head to our Analytics App Market and download the Last.fm neighbours application. The app was initially created to show what you could potentially do with the last.fm connector, so you can start there and then can edit it to fit your needs.
Last.fm is a music discovery service and the app uses the Datameer connector to search for all of the artists that your neighbors listen to that are not included in your library, selects the top 100 most-listened to artists, and then randomly chooses five for you to explore.
This is really a fun example of one of our pre-built templates. We have connectors built in other apps for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn as well more enterprise-focused apps for security, email, etc.
If you use a template, it’s very easy to sign in to access the data. For a full view, check out the quick tutorial below.
