7:15 - 7:45 - "Data Engineering at the Speed of Software Development: Introducing the DataOps Manifesto" by Eric Schiller

Rapid changes in data management technology and network infrastructure enabled the field of data science as we know it. Traditional methodologies for handling data projects became too slow to handle the teams working with the technology, driving the need for a new way to manage data teams. The DataOps Manifesto was created as a response, borrowing from the Agile Manifesto, the DevOps movement, and Lean Manufacturing to use the wins of other domains with similar situations, and then tailoring it to data and analytics. This talk covers the principles of the DataOps Manifesto, the challenges that led to it, and how and where it's already being applied in industry.

Speaker Bio
Eric Schiller is Data Engineer at Excella who brings his years of widely varied IT experience to projects where data and software engineering intersect. His favorite projects are legacy modernizations and finding the middle ground in disparate domains (both technical systems and people with different specialties). He also has a huge interest in technical ethics and peer mentoring.

When he's not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, watching the Capitals, travel, and the pursuit of good food and craft beer.

7:50 - 8:20 - DataOps case study: pic2pick

DataOps case study: pic2pick is an ongoing project to develop an AI-powered bot which selects and posts images to social media. This project involves computer vision analysis of a cloud-hosted image archive, classic machine learning techniques, front-end development for user interaction, social media metric monitoring, and several other nuanced issues faced by data nerds. Given its many moving parts and variety of data sources, Byron will present pic2pick as a case study and lead discussion around DataOps best practices.

Dr. Byron Gaskin is an engineer and data scientist based out of Washington, DC who brings his background in mechanical engineering and bioengineering to projects where the digital world meets the physical world. He loves AI-related projects and exploring how society interacts with emerging technologies.

When not coding, Byron enjoys traveling, doing photography, and cycling around DC.
