Data Engineering with Pete Soderling

In the last five years, companies started hiring data engineers. A data engineer creates the systems that manage and access the huge volumes of data that are accumulating on cheap cloud servers. As the saying goes, “it’s more expensive to throw out the data than to store it.”

Pete Soderling joins the show to discuss the rise of the data engineer, and how that role interacts with data scientists, software engineers, and machine learning experts. Pete runs Hakka Labs, a site that aggregates material for data science and data engineering. He also organizes DataEngConf, a conference for data engineering.
