The first piece is a data engineering reading & watching list with the articles, books, and presentations I find to be most valuable or influential.

Welcome to the Mapflat blog

Welcome to my blog. Posts will be infrequent, but have high signal-to-noise ratio. The primary focus will be practical technical aspects of scalable batch and real-time processing, complemented with occasional posts on general software engineering and technical productivity.
