Who will be the data product developer in data mesh? There has been a misconception in Zhamak’s view that the application developers should be the ones focused on building the data products as well – but she thinks they already have a full-time role 🙂 But, we need someone applying software engineering practices and data know-how to building data products. Right now, to do data work, you need way too much tool knowledge instead of data understanding. We have hyper specialized data roles – ML engineer, data engineer, etc. – when we should have data developers that can tackle these challenges better.
