Maarten is in conversation with Arif Wider, Professor of Software Engineering at HTW Berlin, and Max Schultze, Data Engineering Manager at Zalando. Arif and Max are friends in data who share a passion and interest in data mesh.

“Data Mesh in Practice: How to Set Up a Data-Driven Organization”, is the book co-authored by Arif and Max and it’s where this conversation starts. This conversation brings forward their practical experience and opinions as they tackle some common misconceptions and answer some challenging questions that will provide insights, "a-ha" and "oh yeah" moments, and valuable takeaways for anyone embarking on their data mesh journey, and everyone looking to make conscious decisions on how they address data at scale. 

There is something for everyone - from data engineers and practitioners, to Berliners, and anyone who believes in the power of people to make the change that will help organizations realize the value of data.
