About Data Columns

Data Columns is a community-led newsletter written by me, Pedram Navid. I'm currently the Head of Data at Hightouch. Previous to Hightouch, I've worked as a a data engineer, a data scientist, and spent many years working with financial data. I've given talks on Entity Resolution at the dbt Office Hours, occasionally muse about data, and talk about all kinds of data-related things on Twitter.

This newsletter aims to bring practical advice about leveling-up as a data practitioner. My focus is bringing relevant, topical advice on practical matters data people care about to your inbox. This isn't a newsletter about the future of data, nor will it be a vendor newsletter that talks about how great Hightouch is: it's editorially independent from Hightouch, and will focus on things you can use in your job today.

I often solicit advice from the data world on Twitter, but if you'd like to contribute or collaborate, or just want to give feedback about how good or bad this newsletter is, please reach out by email!
