Want to learn about the best practice of being an on call data engineer? Daniele Rapati from notonthehighstreet.com will be sharing his life experiences and how best to avoid disasters!
The first weekend of October 2015 my company bought an advert during the first episode of “Downton Abbey” on Sunday evening. It was so successful that the website went down for half an hour. We wanted to look at the analytics and the data to estimate the impact. But they were having a very hard weekend too: the replica of the production database we used was unreachable and the only person who knew how to fix it was on a plane. Monday really was a memorable day.

I Don't Like Mondays: What I Learned About Data Engineering After 2 years On Call
A Data Engineer with experience in Retail and the Finance industry. Daniele joined the notonthehighstreet.com Data Team in October 2014 relentlessly building and rebuilding the data infrastructure since then. Some of his best successes and most of his worst mistakes involve heavy doses of Python, Linux command-line and SQL, walls and walls of hand-crafted SQL.
