• Data engineering at Ada: Nice evolutionary story of a data usage anaylitics pipeline at Ada. Start with transaction dbs + adhoc queries, then introduce recurring jobs, then a more sophisticated scheduler, then the ability to ask questions in a more adhoc way (sql based interface to the data vs having to write a program), up to a frontend tool for visualizing queries
    • They specifically said they weren’t going to do real-time. I like this avoidance of extra complexity!
