Online Meetup with Emily Gorcenski

Join Us

As part of a collaborative initiative, Trifork and GOTO have organised a series of events with GOTO experts and Trifork Software Engineers & Architects. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and the opportunity to network with other like-minded attendees.

Join us for the online Meetup “Shifting Left to Improve Data Reliability with SLO Theory” with Trifork’s Software Engineer, Adele Carpenter, hosting GOTO expert Emily Gorcenski. During this one hour session, Emily will focus on exploring the ways to shift left with data through a tool-agnostic lens, and how this approach can move us closer to federated and decentralized data architectures like Data Mesh.

About the event

The tools and patterns for data engineering have improved significantly over the past several years, but the challenges around getting value from data have stayed the same. Business stakeholders continue to report that issues with data quality, data trustworthiness, and data discoverability are blocking the ability to meaningfully materialize value from data assets within a company. What leads to these patterns, and what do we have to do differently to address these challenges?

Borrowing the “shift left” approach to quality, security, and governance from the continuous delivery world, we can build better, more reliable data pipelines and systems. Using SLO theory, we’ll look at ways to shift left with data through a tool-agnostic lens, and how this approach moves us closer to federated and decentralized data architectures like Data Mesh.

Adele Carpenter

Trifork, Software Engineer

Adele is a Software Engineer at Trifork Amsterdam, where she is working on backend systems for the educational sector. Most of her work day is spent in the JVM/Spring ecosystems. Adele got the coding bug later in life but since then has been making up for lost time, going from command line n00b to employed Software Engineer in just one year. Her experiences both in and out of tech have given her a unique perspective on the art of programming together with humans, which she hopes is useful to other humans who program with humans.

Emily Gorcenski

ThoughtWorks, GOTO Expert

Principal Data Scientist

Emily has over ten years of experience in scientific computing and engineering research and development. She has a background in mathematical analysis, with a focus on probability theory and numerical analysis. She is currently working in Python development, though she has a background that includes C#/.Net, Unity3D, SQL, and MATLAB. In addition, she has experience in statistics and experimental design, and has served as principal investigator in clinical research projects.
