Our Core Data Engineering track gives practical examples of full-stack data architectures, data pipelines and plumbing systems, and reference examples of ETL functions & workflow schedulers. The track explores the stories behind the challenges faced by experienced engineers when building modern data infrastructures and features key open sources projects our speakers are keen to share with the community.
Joan Viladrosa is the Head of Data Engineering at Stuart Delivery, designing and building tools for a more data-centric company.
