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.
- 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
