Meeting with Zhamak at Big Data London
On twenty first Sept 2022 I attended the primary day of the Big Data London (BDL) convention held on the London Olympia. My most important motive for travelling to the convention was easy, to see and communicate with Zhamak Dehghani.
In brief, goal achieved, together with clearing the air from these unfavourable LinkedIn conversations 🙂
Despite the jet lag Zhamak delivered a wonderful keynote session on Data Mesh implementation and later participated in a panel debate with different business leaders on ‘Data Mesh – What it’s essential know’. A couple of photos beneath.
The key takeaway from the keynote session for me was a brand new avenue of considering regarding Data Mesh Anti-Patterns. In explicit, Zhamak’s statements:
- expertise gaps result in anti-patterns.
- what acquired us right here, gained’t take us there.
Yes, precisely! *Applause*
For properly over a yr now I’ve been scuffling with this downside. Talking about and questioning what expertise must be used for sure facets of information mesh implementations. From the BDL session, this open acceptance that we nonetheless have a expertise hole was actually refreshing to listen to and embracing these gaps collectively, slightly than forcing the implementation, leading to anti-pattern deliveries.
Zhamak is evident on the north star for knowledge mesh and past. As practitioners, we have to proceed working by these technical issues, with assist from software program distributors.
Lots extra considering to return right here. Stay tuned. I simply needed to publish a fast publish whereas this is entrance of thoughts.
Many thanks for studying
