    However, limitations to traditional CDPs, especially around connecting to best-of-breed customer tooling and exposing data for use across an organization have driven a new generation of non-CDPs. Solutions like Snowplow's (website, GitHub) data delivery platform and RudderStack's (website, GitHub) customer data platform for developers ingest data from a multitude of sources, apply in-stream transformations, and route data to your data warehouse, like Snowplow, or your warehouse plus your preferred customer tooling destinations for activation, like RudderStack.
  • RudderStack + Blendo: Better Together
    1 project | | 25 Nov 2021
    I learned many lessons from this journey - lessons that deserve a post of their own - but there's one lesson that I learned early on that stands out. In this blog, I talk about why we merged Blendo with RudderStack, building the team and working together to build a great product.

    In fact, developers have already started contributing to our documentation. Recently, Benedikt from the Userlist team created the docs for the Userlist destination for RudderStack (see the pull request here). They also built the Userlist integration, submitted a pull request, and it is now live on our platform! This is the beauty of open source!

  • Dogfooding at RudderStack: Tracking Plans Part 1
    1 project | | 21 Oct 2021
    With your Tracking Plans in place, you can use the existing Data Governance API's to evaluate your inbound events, payload samples and metadata to compare them against your plans. You can also use the RudderTyper tool we're releasing alongside Tracking Plans. RudderTyper is a tool for generating strongly-typed RudderStack analytics library wrappers based on your published tracking plan specs, meaning your data will conform to your defined schema upon capture.

  • Show HN: SpotML – Managed ML Training on Cheap AWS/GCP Spot Instances
    6 projects | | 3 Oct 2021
    Neat. Congratulations on the launch!

    Apart from the fact that it could deploy to both GCP and AWS, what does it do differently than AWS Batch [0]?

    When we had a similar problem, we ran jobs on spots with AWS Batch and it worked nicely enough.

    Some suggestions (for a later date):

    1. Add built-in support for Ray [1] (you'd essentially be then competing with Anyscale, which is a VC funded startup, just to contrast it with another comment on this thread) and dbt [2].

    2. Support deploying coin miners (might be good to widen the product's reach; and stand it up against the likes of consensys).

    3. Get in front of many cost optimisation consultants out there, like the Duckbill Group.

    If I may, where are you building this product from? And how many are on the team?





  • Replacing Segment Computed & SQL Traits With dbt & RudderStack Warehouse Actions
    1 project | | 1 Oct 2021
    It will be helpful to set the stage, as no two technical stacks are the same and not all data warehouse platforms provide the same functionality. It's for the latter that we really like tools like dbt, and the sample files provided here should provide a good starting point for your specific use case. Our instance leverages the cloud version of dbt and connects to our Snowflake data warehouse, where models output tables in a designated dbt schema.

  • 7 Alternatives to Using Segment
    2 projects | | 29 Sep 2021
    Since all of the data is often already in the data warehouse, the logical choice is to simply just use it as a CDP. A modern data stack should consist of an end-to-end flow from data acquisition, collection, and transformation. In most cases, the easiest way to enable this goal is by leveraging tools that are purposely designed to handle a single task. Fivetran, Snowflake, and dbt are great examples of this. In fact, this is the core technology stack that every data-driven company is adopting. Fivetran handles the entire data integration aspect providing a simple SaaS solution that helps businesses quickly move data out of their SaaS tools and into their data warehouse. Snowflake provides an easy way for organizations to consolidate their data into one location for analytics purposes. Lastly, dbt provides a simple transformation tool that is SQL-based, enabling users to create data models that can be reused. These three solutions combined create an effective data management platform.
