Using no-code and custom pipelines to build fast

Alex Streed, Integrations Team Lead, Prefect

In the history of data engineering, there have always been two dichotomous approaches: write custom code (typically in Python) or use a no-or low-code tool such as Fivetran. These worlds are now merging and for good reason. Data teams have massive scope and responsibilities today, and they want to focus their limited resources on the most critical problems that require human ingenuity — and frankly are a lot more fun. Join this session to learn why companies today are outsourcing connections and dataflows to vendors like Fivetran to manage the hundreds of API endpoints while maintaining control and viability with a tool like Prefect.
