Data Engineering = Software Engineering: a visual journey of the advanced analytics team at H&M – Half Scheidl, H&M


The H&M advanced analytics team has come a long way! We went from enabling the first ML projects with data extracts, to a fully featured data-as-a-service platform in the cloud, combining proprietary and open source tech. In this journey, software engineering has become as important as data engineering. The session will include a live demo, combining data processing, data visualization and creative coding, showing H&Ms journey into modern data platforms.

Key Takeaways

  • Modern data engineering requires a broader mix of competences
  • Software engineering is a key component of a successful data platform, and should be incorporated from the start
  • Creative coding techniques are a fun way of developing software skills and making visualizations
