Coffee Sessions #22

Deep in the Heart of Data

LinkedIn's own Carl Steinbach joined us to go over his mastery in all this data plane. This is one of those videos that are not directly correlated with ML but has so much importance for MLOps. Carl caught Demetrios' eye when he realized that Carl was a contributor to this incredible article around the new architecture for modern data infrastructure we are starting to see. Some Gems from the chat are: - Breakdown of Transpiler - Advantages of Decoupling the Execution Layer - Differences between UDF (user-defined function) Functions and Views - Data structure evolution over the years One nugget of wisdom was Carl's vision of how data lakes and data warehouses are on a crash course towards each other!
