Data Culture & Storytelling @ WeWork
This talk will share Gabi's radical approach to building data culture at WeWork, from the ground up fueled by her belief that data is often the least important part of building a data-driven organization.
Gabi Steele, Data Visualization Engineer @ WeWork Technology:
Gabi Steele is a co-founder of Data Cult, an internal innovation program developed to empower WeWork employees to solve problems using data. She also leads data visualization for WeWork’s central data and analytics department which involves storytelling and prototyping data tools. The talk will be in English.
Taking Data to a Bigger Scale
This talk will go over key open source components of the Big Data ecosystem (including Apache Calcite, Parquet, Arrow, Avro, Kafka, Batch and Streaming systems) and will describe how they all relate to each other and make our Big Data ecosystem more of a database and less of a file system. The talk will be in Hebrew.
Lior Baber, Data Engineer @ WeWork Technology:
Lior is a Software Engineer in WeWork’s Data Platform. Lior has a wealth of experience in building large scale real time data pipelines in the cloud, and has a passion for clean code and high quality, easy to deploy data-driven systems.
He is highly proficient in Big Data technologies such as Spark, Hadoop and Kafka using mainly Scala, Python and SQL as development languages.
