Let’s think of the worst-case scenario first. You have a brilliant engineer and head of a marketing team together working on a great product. Trust me on this one, you don’t want to get in between that duel. Put them in a room lock them up and they’ll figure out something. You don’t want any piece of that.

Now think of the best-case scenario. An engineer and a community builder working together to generate fantastic products and a wonderful community experience. You should put them together on a podcast instead.

On January 28th, I’ll be talking to Thom Ives, Ph.D. the engineer, and Giovanna-Reggina Galleno-Malaga the community builder together on my show. The duo is one of the most helpful people in the data science and machine learning community and if you don’t have them in your LinkedIn network, you are missing out a lot.
