Feedback! I introduced the feedback option at the bottom of the newsletter, and am getting quite a bit of feedback. Thank you! I read every single line of it! So keep it going, I certainly will.
The company Hex Technologies with their notebook application supporting both
SQL and Python just raised a Series A this week.
This of course prompted me to take a closer look at the product (again), and get excited!
Read about it below…
I’m Sven, I collect “Data Points” to help understand & shape the future, one powered by data.

Svens Thoughts
If you only have 30 seconds to spare, here is what I would consider actionable insights for investors, data leaders, and data company founders.
- Hex notebooks are worth a try. They already offer enough to be fun to use, SQL & Python cells and parameters enabling “storytelling” and building small “Apps” which can be integrated into a CRM System, etc.
- Hex has a data vision. A data vision is a vision for the future of the whole market. They seem to have a good one and integrate their own product vision into that. Every data company should have that, yet few do.
- The 5 level autonomous driving system can be useful. It can be useful in designing your own autonomous systems because it adds a nice framework for seeing where you’re truly at, and where you could go.
- Malloy is about to get interesting. Malloy is a language compiling to SQL and soon to support PostgreSQL on top of BigQuery.
🎄 Thanks!
