Feast with Willem Pienaar

Your Host

About this Episode

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) and Willem Pienaar (@willpienaar) talk about Feast, the open-source feature store for machine learning. Feature stores act as a bridge between models and data, and allow data scientists to ship features into production without the need for engineers. Willem co-created Feast at Gojek, and later teamed up with the folks at Tecton to back the project.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The value of feature stores in MLOps
  • What happens when you open-source too early
  • Why most open-source code has nothing to hide
  • Bringing an open-source project to an existing company
  • Good and bad use cases for a feature store
