Today I’m speaking with Derek Meyer (Data Nexus). Ever since joining The Graph community, Derek has become a highly engaged and thoughtful contributor. Derek is one of the unique participants within The Graph whose been able to participate in various stakeholder roles effectively – Delegator, Curator, Subgraph Developer, and now with an Indexer, with the recent launch Data Nexus. He also helped launch Curation Station, a highly active Telegram group dedicated to Curation, for which he was previously featured on this podcast (Episode 29).
A lot Derek’s background was covered during our prior interview (Ep. 29), so today we spend most of our time talking about Derek’s journey from an entrepreneurial subgraph developer to Indexer. We explored a lot of interesting themes during the interview, including how Derek approached the decision to become an Indexer, his advice to those who want to do the same thing, his experience at Graph Day, and his participation in Graph Advocates and Graph AdvocatesDAO.
