You have opportunities to look into any layer of the stack to create new capabilities to make the features working e2e, including UX, middle tier, storage, data analysis, query/document/image understanding, index, etc. Imagine if you have an idea and what are the best practices you follow to validate your concept in cost effective way and how you sell your idea to VCs to get the funding, you’ll gain all these skills in this group and we empower engineers to take bold risks and learn from the past decisions.
