Marvelous Mid March Issue
The quick bit…
Dave McComb of Semantic Arts was a recent guest on the Data Mesh Radio Podcast episode on March 3rd. Dave coined the data-centric term and outlined its principles which happen to have many adherents within the Data Mesh community. If you haven’t heard this episode, listen in to hear Dave and Scott compare and contrast the two.
