Big Data and Machine Learning with Nick Caldwell
 Episode 39 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Nick Caldwell CPO at Looker and former VP of engineering at Reddit.Listen to the interview on iTunes, or Google Podcast, or watch on YouTube.In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews  Nick Caldwell from Looker,  you get to learn about big data, machine learning and AI."Modern data stores are extremely powerful. You can put tons and tons of data into them. You can query them without losing speed. And in some cases, you can even do analytics in the database. We're just seeing this trend where the data layer is becoming more and more powerful, and Looker is riding that trend." "My favorite learning, again, was just what's going on in the data engineering space. The BigQuery to me, at that time, was just mind blowing. You dump 4-5 petabytes of data in a big data store and query it all at once. It's stunning to me. I didn't know this thing was possible. And you can do that in an affordable fashion." "My degree was focused in Machine Learning, and I think nowadays when people ask me about that sort of formal education, I tell them, 'You probably don't need it.' You can get really, really far in Machine Learning and just focus on the practical applications of it, without having to understand the underlying Mathematics of it. I think that's a really powerful thing, that abstraction."  —Nick Caldwell Production and music by Derek Bernard - Trent Lapinski - https://trentlapinski.com If you dig the new Hacker Noon Podcast, consider giving us a 5 star review on iTunes.Also check out  April top stories, the latest stories and today’s homepage.  
Solving Problems in the Tech Community with Pariss Athena of BlackTechTwitter &  BTPipeline
Episode 38 of the Hacker Noon Podcast: An interview with Pariss Athena, Creator of #BlackTechTwitter & Founder of the @BTPipeline platform, a community for people of color to mentor each other and find work. In this episode Trent Lapinski interviews Pariss Athena, Front end Dev/RN dev, creator of #BlackTechTwitter & founder of @BTPipeline platform, a community for people of color to mentor each other and find work. "It's scary. I even think about that for Web Development, because of things like Squarespace and Wix, where people don't even need to know how to code where they could just build their website from there. Are they going to automate that? Are people just going to be able to customize their websites exactly as need be without web developers? And it's like, okay in that case, you have to be the one to produce something like a Wix or a Squarespace ” "I thought coding was going to be super difficult, but it's not, it's actually very artistic. Anyone can do it." "This type of system makes people stuck. I'm trying to phrase that the way I want to say it, but you're kind of stuck. It's like, weighing your options, you're not going to get what you want, you're just choosing between what you can actually afford. It's holding everyone back, and this is why I worry for black people coming from lower income communities. Another thing is, they're not even aware that they can actually come into this industry that way. They don't know that, because they don't have exposure to it, because they don't have resources, and without resources you're just not aware. And that's the other thing that's frightening." - Pariss AthenaProduction and music by Derek Bernard  — http:// Trent Lapinski — https://trentlapinski.com

And that was what caught me in. That was the bait, and it was a good bait. But afterwards I started to dive into all those projects and I remember, I don't want to name it because my apprehension of this was a bit weird, but basically I saw this project and for a long time I thought it was a scam, and maybe it is, but still they showed that you can technically be able to open bank accounts for unbanked people without them having to read or be tech-savvy. And that was my 'aha!' moment." - Karim Sabba and music by Derek Bernard - Trent Lapinski -
