About Michel Tricot:
Michel is the CEO and Co-Founder of Airbyte, the new open-source ELT standard for replicating data from applications, APIs & databases. Michel has been working in data engineering for the past 15 years. As head of integrations and engineering director at Liveramp (NYSE: RAMP), he grew the team responsible for building and scaling the data ingestion and data distribution connectors, syncing 100s TB every day.
