Data & Analytics Wednesday is an informal, monthly gathering of people in the data and analytics, marketing and optimisation community that happens in cities all around the world. Formerly known as Web Analytics Wednesday Sydney, we've changed to Data & Analytics Wednesday Sydney to reflect our growth since we began in 2013 - and to better represent the diversity of the topics we explore at our meetup.
We meet every second Wednesday of the month to hear talks on what's happening in the data and analytics space, with plenty of time for open discussion and networking. Plus there's free drinks!
Future of Work in the Age of Microservices
Vivek Bharadwaj | Data Scientist, THE ICONIC
The future of work is very different to what our parents experienced. Are we standing at the precipice of a watershed moment fuelled by AI, blockchain, quantum, and other Gartner Hype chart buzzwords — or are we just in a continuum of change that every generation has faced? This is up for debate. But the trends show workforce sizes are shrinking by 30% (and counting) per decade for most companies under 500 employees, while the large companies are growing larger. AI and automation have been shifting the very notion of value that we contribute to business, and to society. A similar paradigm shift has been taking place in software engineering as more and more companies are adopting “microservices”. What lessons can we learn from this architecture as we prepare ourselves for the workplace of the future, powered by intelligent automation tools?
