Transitioning from software engineering to data engineering
Every data team should have at least one data engineer with a software engineering background. This time on The Data Engineering Show, Xiaoxu Gao is an inspiring Python and data engineering expert with 10.6K followers on Medium.
She’s a data engineer at Adyen with a software engineering background, and she met the bros to talk about why both software and data engineering skills are so important.
Without software engineering skills you’ll be limited to the rigid capabilities of your stack. But without data engineering skills you’ll find it hard to be cost effective and see the bigger picture.
Vin Vashishta explains why we should stop using dashboards
Vin Vashista, the guy we all love to follow, has never seen a dashboard with positive ROI. This time on The Data Engineering Show, he met the bros to talk about the difference between BI dashboards and analytics that actually introduce knowledge. It’s no longer just about the data volume, it’s about quality and relevance.
Joe Reis and Matt Housley on the fundamentals of data engineering
After co-writing the best-selling book ‘Fundamentals of Data Engineering’, Joe Reis and Matt Housely joined the bros for some much-needed ranting, priceless data advice, and good laughs. So why are we still talking about providing business value and dashboards, even though we don’t really have anything new to say? If there are so many great tools in the data stack, why are we still so troubled? How can we focus more on things like data governance and data quality that’ll actually push the industry forward?
Bill Inmon, the Godfather of Data Warehousing
As people in the data industry go, Bill Inmon is among the top, often seen as the godfather of the data warehouse. In this Data Engineering Show episode, Bill Inmon talks about surviving rabbit holes throughout the evolution of data, the data modeling renaissance, and why ChatGPT is not Textual ETL.

Data engineering from the early 2000s till today - BlackRock
When it comes to data management, have we come a long way since the early 2000s? Or has it simply taken us 20 years to finally realize that you can’t scale properly without data modeling. With over 20 years of experience in the data space, leading engineering teams at Cisco, Oracle, Greenplum, and now as Sr. Director of Engineering at BlackRock, Krishnan Viswanathan talks about the data engineering challenges that existed two decades ago and still exist today.
Rude host keeps interrupting guests
It’s appalling and disgusting how this ignorant person can keep interrupting speakers (eg the Airflow episode) with completely useless and irrelevant comments, without someone slapping on their mouth.
