Notes: Questions and Topics

Live! 360 Call for Speakers Open

We opened up with a note that the Live! 360 call for speakers is currently open. I’ve had the fortune to be able to speak there several years now and I think it’s an excellent conference covering a wide variety of tech tracks.

The Modern Data Stack

Friend of the show Chris Voss chimed in with the major theme for the night: the modern data stack.

Summarizing Chris’s question in my own words:

  • What, exactly, is the modern data stack? Many companies are selling it as cloud-native (or at least cloud-first) services, consolidating data lakes and data warehouses together.
  • Is this concept just a bunch of marketing hype or is there something real to it?

We spent a lot of time talking about Microsoft Fabric, data lakes and lakehouses, and a variety of other topics in and around the “modern data stack” idea.
