Max Schultze is a data engineering manager working on
building a data infrastructure platform at Zalando, Europe’s biggest
online platform for fashion. His focus is on building data pipelines at
petabytes scale, productionizing distributed processing engines like Spark
and Trino, and providing services and tooling for data management to
hundreds of teams across the company. As an early adopter of the Data Mesh
paradigm, he is frequently advocating its usage through conference
appearances and online trainings. Max graduated from Humboldt University
of Berlin, actively taking part in the university’s initial development of
Apache Flink.

Dr. Arif Wider is a professor of software engineering at HTW
Berlin and a principal technology consultant with Thoughtworks Germany,
where he served as head of Data and AI before moving back to academia. As
a vital part of his research, teaching, and consulting, he is passionate
about distilling and distributing great ideas and concepts that emerge in
the software engineering community. He therefore frequently speaks and
writes about technology but enjoys nothing more than bringing together
people with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise.
