Data Applications With Dave King

Data scientists need flexible interfaces for displaying and manipulating data sets. Data engineers need to be able to visualize how their data pipelines wire together databases and data processing frameworks. DevOps engineers need dashboards to understand their monitoring data at a high level. All of these programmers are building data applications.

Data applications let us visualize and manipulate data sets effectively. In today’s episode, Dave King joins the show to describe the growing importance of data applications. Many knowledge workers use flexible tools like spreadsheets and business intelligence applications. But when you build a domain specific data application for a knowledge worker, you can unlock a higher degree of leverage for that knowledge worker. We discuss data applications and the future of knowledge work in this episode with Dave King.
