Dask as a Platform Service with Coiled

Episode #285, published Fri, Oct 9, 2020, recorded Wed, Aug 12, 2020

If you're into data science, you've probably heard about Dask. It's a package that feels like familiar APIs such as Numpy, Pandas, and Scikit-Learn. Yet it can scale that computation across CPU cores on your local machine all the way to distributed grid-based computing in large clusters.

While powerful, this may take some serious setup to execute in its full glory. That's why Matthew Rocklin has teamed up with Hugo Bowne-Anderson and others to launch a business to help Python loving data scientists run Dask workloads in the cloud. And they are here to tell us about they open-source foundation business.

And they must be on to something, between recording and releasing this episode, they raised $5M in VC funding.
