Data Mesh Learning (DML) is a vendor-independent & consultant-independent website, designed to help those of all knowledge and experience levels with data mesh find useful information and join the growing community. The founders saw how difficult it was to find data mesh content scattered across the web so they created a central location. Their goal is to make learning about data mesh easy, drive buy-in at your company, and connect you with others looking to deploy a data mesh.
As of February 2023, their Slack community has more than 7000 practitioners.
