Previous episodes of the New Builders (see “Ep. 3: A Developer and a Data Scientist Walk Into a Bar” and “Ep. 7: Plug and Play Data Movement in the Cloud“) have touched on the Simple Data Pipe, an open source data movement project created by IBM developer advocates. In Episode 16, we devote the better part of an interview to the continued evolution of this project, as we’re joined by Patrick Titzler, IBM Developer Advocate, and Mike Broberg (@mikebroberg), Editor for the Cloud Data Services Dev Center.

During the roundtable interview, we cover Patrick’s journey from developer to developer advocate and the mission of dev advocacy (03:57), how Patrick came to be part of the Simple Data Pipe project (10:36), how the original version of Simple Data Pipe was an end to end solution that landed data directly into dashDB from Cloudant (13:17), Patrick’s work to add new data source connectors to the project (20:12), why the dev advocacy team decided to re-architect Simple Data Pipe to be more open-ended (32:13) and how Patrick is using Simple Data Pipe to extract data from Slack to gain business insights from Slack channel conversations (35:26).
