As a long-time practitioner in the data field (roles at Google, Cloudera and others) Josh Wills, currently Director of Data Science at Slack, explains some of the real-world motivations and tensions between data science and engineering teams.

In his own humorous way, Josh brings up some controversial ideas in this talk (ETL in Javascript?!) which spurred some highly interesting Q/A from the audience as well as prolonged attendee discussions throughout the event.

(Sorry that the picture is a bit dark, we were playing w/ the lights - but the audio is good!)

This talk was a keynote recorded at our DataEngConf event in San Francisco.

This talk shows how to build an ETL pipeline using Google Cloud Dataflow/Apache Beam that ingests textual data into a BigQuery table. Google engineer Silviu Calinoiu gives a live coding demo and discusses concepts as he codes. You don't need any previous background with big data frameworks, although people familiar with Spark or Flink will see some similar concepts. Because of the way the framework operates the same code can be used to scale from GB files to TB files easily.
