Eric Anderson (@ericmander) talks with Artyom Keydunov (@keydunov) about Cube, the semantic layer for building data applications. Cube helps engineers bridge data warehouses and data experiences, and provides access control, security, caching, and more helpful features. The project began in open-source and has evolved quite a lot over the last few years with a ton of community support.
In this episode we discuss:
What is a semantic layer?
Coming up with the idea to open-source during a game of ping pong
Setting a ten-company-deployment goal
Using Cube to track COVID stats in lockdown
