Meetup Overview

DSPT#53 and DevOps Porto#27 – DataOps (Porto)

published by Rodrigo Barros - 22 May, 2019

On 16th of May @ Blip, DevOps Porto and DSPT joined forces to explore the DataOps topics. We had two inspiring talks that lead us into the world of Data Science Operations and all the mess and trouble that comes with it.

We had insights over data management practices and processes that improves the speed and accuracy of analytics platforms focusing on quality control, automation, integration, model deployment, version control and environment management. Is all that possible?!?

We started the evening with Diego Reiriz Cores, a R&D Engineer focused on Data and AI working for Gradiant (Vigo). He introduced the audience to DataOps methodologies and good practices with database solutions, and at the same time, the painful processes that is creating and managing those environments regarding the expanding set of available tools, roles and backgrounds within the same team.

Later, we had Filipe Coelho, a PhD in Informatics Engineering at FEUP, Software Engineer specialized in Big Data, former R&D on Machine Learning at INESC TEC and has mentored DataOps teams for companies like Farfetch, Prozis and Hostelworld. He made the audience laugh regarding the Data Science buzzword and all the Anti Patterns for Data Science teams that came just after : from the cotton candy-powered Data Unicorn™️ to the Second-grade Data Plumber™️, going through the multi-title Jack of all (Data) Trades™️ to the fabulous Trophy Data Scientist.
