Alleviate developer frustrations around slow queries and wrong information that make their jobs more difficult with database transparency
The rise of microservices has led engineering orgs to deal with more data and sources. Access to such vast user information offers excellent potential, but it depends entirely on how your org handles and utilizes this data. The idea of "democratization" of data is a hot topic in the tech industry, but sharing data knowledge and skills across different functions is easier said than done. In many orgs, software developers typically have only basic SQL knowledge and little time or interest in understanding how their databases work and how database performance affects their org. This lack of transparency creates a "black box" culture around databases, leaving engineering teams frustrated and confused when they encounter slow queries or missing information.
In this panel, engineering leaders and data experts discuss everything a developer needs to know about databases to get what they need and when it's needed. We will be helping developers view databases as a tool rather than a hindrance by breaking down topics such as database management and database performance, explaining why they're essential, and how developers can contribute to the health of the databases within their org.
