Yesterday was a blast and Starburst CMO, Jess Iandiorio passes the baton to Developer Advocate, Monica Miller who will emcee today’s amazing lineup. Day two brings more technical and how-to content.

There’s still time to register for Datanova!

Our keynote kickoff is “Fun with Founders: Expectation vs. Reality,” featuring Matt Fuller from Starburst, Drew Banin from dbt Labs, Maxime Beauchemin from Preset, and Michel Tricot from Airbyte.

Join us to see what the most outrageous thing they’ve done to win over a customer.

It’s 10AM and showtime with our talented Monica Miller!

Fun with founders: expectation versus reality with Matt, Drew, Max and Michel

Matt Fuller on wearing shoes two sizes too small to a customer meeting

Drew Banin on working on a secret project, which is now dbt labs

Max Beauchemin on the importance of not using sensitive data

Michel Tricot on developing features in real time

Is data mesh the end of data engineering?

Finally! Who will win this debate? Let’s see.

Seems like Reis, Mott and Tartow are continuing the debate in the parking lot.

In the meantime, sign up to participate in the next Data Mesh Book Club. (Next in the series, Andy and Adrian will be discussing Fundamentals of Data Engineering)

Listen to all the latest episodes during your commute on Apple Podcast!

Update: Colleen wrote, “In the end, we decided that #dataengineering today is an essential part of #DataMesh but we are all excited to see what the future holds! 🚀”

Data products for everyone featuring Glovo

Simone Grandi, Head of Products at Glovo explains how they went from MVP (i.e. build 1-2 data products) to self-service w/ 90 data products in production. 

Vishal Singh, Head of Data Products at Starburst use Starburst Data Products to demonstrate a quick and easy way to get started with setting up and running a data mesh in your organization.

Within a few seconds, the data owner can find out who has access, assign and revoke access, how it’s been used, add new data sources and explore data sets.

Vishal: In Galaxy, you can share queries across different roles according to assigned permissions…and collaborate with other members to create new insights and data products.

Check out yesterday’s talk on the Starburst product vision.

Building a data analytics platform with a lakehouse at 7bridges

Postgres didn’t scale, hence a new data architecture.

Simon: Remove compute as much as possible. To move our data into a better analytical format, which is great for our AI and reporting. The important thing is to work on a lakehouse architecture….It gives us a flexible environment to work with.

The architecture behind fault-tolerant execution

Trino was designed to replace Hive…We enabled data engineers to run analysis much more quickly.

Challenges with original architecture: organizations aren’t a big fan of having big clusters to satisfy a few queries and remain idle the rest of the time as well as resource management.

Goals: How do we get Trino work better in the face of failure? The most immediate one: We wanted to Trino to tackle node failures. 

In addition: run queries…reliably. More flexible strategies for resource management. (i.e. Cancel first query and select the second one?) How can we dynamically adapt a query?

Benefits of this new architecture: Being able to recover from a single task, this reduces the overall time and latency. The amount of memory you need — is what you use, and accommodate the queries based on the memory you have.

In data & people we trust: building a reliable data platform with Trino and data observability

Data observability starts with your ‘why’

The people define what data quality means to them and agree to uphold the standards.

An introduction to data contracts with Chad Sanderson and Monica Miller

Chad: If data quality was poor, we would make terrible predictions on a shipment….We lost a million dollars over a couple of days because of those issues… 

A data contract is an API agreement between data producers and consumers on the semantics, the SLA, etc. 

When we talk about data quality, we often place the responsibility on the consumer/data engineer: to monitor it, root cause it, solve the problem — which they often…can’t!

Data quality failures often happen upstream…

Six ideas on why data engineering might fail with Benn Stancil cofounder and Chief Analytics Officer at Mode

  1. Data engineering is boring and no one wants to do this job.
  2. We all get fired. Because we cost too much.
  3. We all get fired. We’re not that valuable.
  4. We’re replaced by tools.
  5. We’re replaced by other people.
  6. We’re automated by AI.
