The goal of this newsletter is to promote continuous learning for data science and engineering professionals. To achieve this goal, I’ll be sharing articles across various sources that I found interesting. The following 5 articles made the cut for today’s newsletter.

1. Architecture for Telemetry data

A good reminder that the software development architecture can be significantly simplified for capturing telemetry data here

2. 5 popular job titles for data engineers

This post here lists 5 popular job titles: data engineer, data architect, data warehouse engineer — I think Analytics engineer is missing in that list but a good post nonetheless. I hope that we get some consolidation and standardization of these job titles over the next few cycles.

3. [Podcast] startup growth strategy and building Gojek data team – Crystal Widjaja

Really good podcast, highly recommended! here

4. Tenets for data cleaning

A must-read technical whitepaper from legendary Hadley Wickham. These principles form the foundation on top of which R software gained a lot of momentum for adoption. Python community uses similar tenets. Must read! here and here

5. Magic metrics that startup probably as product/market fit from Andrew Chen

A must-follow Growth leader!

  1. Cohort Retention curves flatten (stickiness)
  2. Actives/Reg > 25% (validates TAM)
  3. power user curve showing a smile
