Weekly reading #25


It has been a long time since the last weekly reading post. We have been in Shanghai and Bangalore during the time. We attended in #DPS10 in Bangalore – the biggest Asian data platform conference driven by a community (Data Platform Geeks). I delivered workshop, sessions, open talk and round table.
