Our world is becoming ever more data driven, we’re collecting data from more sources than ever and whilst data tools are becoming more sophisticated, working with and deriving insightful meaning from our data is still the greatest challenge of all.
Developers track the data they have available to them, analysts work with that data to try and find insights but there is often a disconnect between a developers world and an analysts world, leaving both parties feeling unsatisfied.
During this talk we’ll look at how we can bridge that gap and help communicate meaning and intention in the data we track, whilst still maintaining the flexibility to evolve your data structures as your business needs change. We’ll also dive into what standards and open source technologies we can utilise to help us roll this out across an organisation.

Join me for an irreverent look at Coupling and Cohesion, Aggregate Roots and the Point of Highest Abstraction … all using the medium of cats.
