00:45 — Kieron is focusing on new development functionality added to Databricks’ Lakehouse platform — specifically the Visual Studio Code Extension for the Databricks Lakehouse platform.
01:12 — The extension enables developers to write code locally while leveraging Microsoft’s incredibly popular Microsoft Visual Studio (VS) as they deploy, test, and run apps in real-time on their database cluster. This lets developers build in the environment they’re accustomed to, without having to switch to another development environment, all while leveraging VS functionality.
01:32 — Kieron appreciates the way Databricks is meeting the needs of customers, while recognizing areas that other companies specialize in, by building a dedicated VS extension “because developers love to use it. At the same time, developers love the outstanding processing, querying, and analytical power of Databricks’ Lakehouse platform,” explains Kieron.
01:50 — Kieron calls this a “clever” development that customers will welcome.
