  • DATAOPS MEETUP: DataOps Deliciousness Kick-Off 22nd @Versent!

    **PLEASE RSVP HERE** http://bit.ly/2CxlvPS DataOps....what is it? We're exploring the intersection between DevOps and Data Science. We all have a bunch of data under the hood, yet who knows about data pipelines? Should data be treated just like any other code? How do I even baseline a Devops transformation project when there are several tools in my CI/CD pipeline? These and other mysterious questions will be discussed as we try to bring both sides closer to each other! Q&A questions and discussion on what is DataOps across 3 states. Data Science? Data and DevOps? What are the tools, what are the trends? Speaker 1: David Shackelford - Group Product Manager, PagerDuty Topic: 'Lessons from building a data culture at PagerDuty' David will share key learnings and takeaways from the past four years building a data practice in PagerDuty’s company and platform. See you all on Feb 22! The MeetupMadness/DataOps Team
