Platform Engineering is about setting up the toolset for developers to be more productive, more early, more safely (i.e. move fast but DON'T break things). Data is a company's key asset, but developers often find getting it and using it is a challenge. In our May meetup, we look at ways to overcome this.
Join us in-person or online to learn patterns and best practices for developing with data.

Session #1: Choosing the right data pipeline design pattern
Data pipelines extract, filter, transform or re-formatted data to meet the needs of the downstream users. Designing the right data pipeline depends on the needs of downstream applications for accuracy, timeliness and reliability. This session explains design patterns for integrating data into a data warehouse, ingesting data into a data lake, and flowing real-time data to a machine learning application.
Speaker: Jon Scheele, Founder & CEO, blue connector
Session #2: Beyond Relational: Extending SQL to noSQL databases
Despite being 50 years young, Structured Query Language (SQL) is still the language of data. Developers, engineers and data analysts value its simplicity and power. But new use cases enabled by the modern data stack bring a new set of tools. In this session, Kevin Johnson shows how Couchbase's SQL++ extends SQL to noSQL databases so that developers can leverage the best of both SQL and the flexibility and scalability of noSQL.
Speaker: Kevin Johnson, Solutions Engineer, Couchbase
