3:10pm - Lightning Talk: Using Data Products to Build Data Products
Modern consumer web companies swear by their ability to wield data as a product development tool. In this day and age, the notion that a company would build a product without running a single A/B test is almost inconceivable. And yet, most companies building data products offer packaged software that must be installed behind the firewall, preventing user testing and iterative release schedules. Mode CEO Derek Steer will discuss the practicality and future of multi-tenant architectures for data products. http://sched.co/1nYBd96
3:30pm - How to build a truly horizontal data company: Challenges and best practices from entrepreneurs in the trenches
Moderated by Battery Ventures' Bucky Moore, Mode CTO Josh Ferguson joins DataHero's Chris Neumann and Realm's Alex Stigsen, to share experiences building products with applications across verticals. http://sched.co/1p0VA59
Whether you attend one of our talks, schedule some time to chat, or use Mode during your hackathon project (Derek's judging, after all), we hope you'll get a chance to check out how Mode's tools can help your team collaborate on SQL-based data analysis. See you next week!
