Recently, I stumbled upon Instant Pentaho Data Integration Kitchen, a quick and inexpensive reference guide for using the PDI command line tools.

Sergio Ramazzina guides you through the process of designing a simple Data Integration job –along with best practices that will ease your life come maintenance day–, using the proper command line tool and scheduling the transformation for periodic execution.

If you’re looking for a short, inexpensive and authoritative guide on creating Pentaho Data Integration jobs and scheduling them using the command line tools, this is it.
