Devin Bost, Senior Data Engineer @ Overstock.com
With over 10 years of experience in the software industry, Devin has developed software in over 15 different languages. Between his experience of performing data migrations, applying vector calculus for ML, and building enterprise applications, he learned the critical role of data in opening doors of insight into novel market opportunities. He also observed many companies architect their software with the mindset of “we’ll figure out the data later,” only to code themselves into life-threatening dead-ends. These observations fueled his interest in context-rich stream-based architectures like Kappa that thrive on live data capture and real-time analysis for instant value-creation.
