As big data analytics becomes more popular, we see many tools aiming to solve very large scale problems. However the focus should be the analytics itself, not "big" or "small". To achieve some uncommon/unrealistic goals, we see popular tools become difficult and tedious to use. More importantly, we are losing consistency between different solutions.
In this talk, we will discuss
1. Pain points of building an ETL and machine learning pipeline using existing popular frameworks
2. New way of thinking when you encounter such problems in your work
3. A new open source project Fugue at Lyft, to realize the idea in the live demo
4. case study in production at Lyft
