Why Building the Backend?

The tools, patterns, and best practices across the data landscape are vast, complex, and constantly changing. Building the Backend is my way to connect with other data leaders to share what’s working with them and what’s not.  I truly believe data is the FUEL for a company, if any company is going to survive and thrive in the near future they HAVE to start realizing there data is an asset and become data driven.

Building the Backend was born as a channel for me learn more across the vast data ecosystem and to share that with data community.
