Nick Schrock is Founder of Dagster Labs & Creator of Dagster - the open source orchestration platform for the development, production, and observation of data assets.

Nick joined Eric and Kostas of The Data Stack Show to discuss the mismatch between the complexity and available tools in the data infrastructure space, and how this lead him to founding Dagster Labs. The group also talks about the challenges and fragmentation in the data engineering industry, the need for better abstraction layers, the role of orchestrators, comparing it to GraphQL's role in product engineering, the importance of data orchestration in the future of data infrastructure and engineering, and more.
