I just stumbled over another ThoughtWorks article rallying for better “developer experiences”. Yet for some reason, I feel this topic is even more pressing in the realm of data.
And by that, I mean both, the data engineers, the machine learners, and the data scientists of this world but also the developers which should be able to work with their data easily. A developer shouldn’t spend his time writing a track function, he should be able to track his newly developed feature with one line of code!
So I suggest you read the article and think about how the data experience probably is for your developers. If you’re a developer, I suggest thinking about whether you don’t see any ways to “exchange the handsaw you got for a chainsaw”.
