#267 The Developer Experience – How Do We Delight Data Developers? – Zhamak’s Corner 30

Key Points:

  • The current data product developer experience sucks. In software, we have one simple interface that manages all the pieces needed to get the job done, packages those components. In data, we have to jump through hoops and interfaces across many tools.
  • Right now, the developer has to manage everything themselves which is a ton of work. But it’s also a big risk because of lifecycle management – if everything isn’t packaged and deployed as one, you have dependencies drifting from each other.
  • There are many places from software we can learn from as to how to do this containerization. Ruby-on-Rails and CloudFoundry are good places to look.
