History of Snowplow Analytics, data collection mind sets, and what the warehouse as a single entity means for data w/ Alex Dean, CEO and co-founder of Snowplow

The Sequel Show

In this live episode with Snowplow CEO and Co-founder Alex Dean, we dive into all things Snowplow and data collection. Alex runs us through the history of Snowplow--how the company was born and how it evolved--as well as what parts of the platform have grown in complexity. We break down what it means to think about events in a mind-frame of abundance vs scarcity, how to adapt to ever-changing regulations around privacy, and data architecture and infrastructure best practices. Alex rounds the discussion out with some advice on how to approach anonymous users over the next five years, and what a world where the warehouse is a single entity means for post-collection data structures.  Let me know what you think over on Twitter at @borisjabes.

Episode 4: Alex Dean Cybulski - Hacker Culture Is Everything You Don't Get Paid For In the Information Security Industry

Hacker Cultures: The Conference Podcast

Alex Dean Cybulski is a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Information. Presently, he is writing a dissertation on capture the flag competitions, play and games in hacker culture and the information security industry.In this session he will talk about the field he is studying – specifically Capture the flag (CTF). It is a competitive game in which players mimic the experience of discovering and exploiting vulnerabilities in information systems, hacking into simulated software and/or networks to retrieve data known as a ‘flag.’ CTF participants, often drawn from the information security and IT industries utilize these games as a means of training to develop/apply offensive security knowledge in a legal way, so that they can better defend the software/systems they are entrusted with.  This presentation will discuss preliminary findings of his research: ethnographic, semi-structured interviews with a team of players at an on-site CTF who also share the same workplace.
