S1:E4, Clint Sharp

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 4 of TBC: The Podcast.

First off, I want to thank everyone for all of the feedback. Don’t forget to rate the show on iTunes, and let us know WHO or WHAT you want to hear.

In this episode, we talk with Clint Sharp in his cool home in beautiful Montclair, Oakland, California. I have known Clint for about 20 years, both as a colleague and friend.

Clint is Director of Product Management, Big Data & Operational Intelligence at Splunk, a San Francisco-based big data analysis company.

Clint is an intensely curious autodidact, accomplished in whatever suits his interests. Genuinely one of the most intelligent people I know.
We spend talking about big data, product management, Splunk of course, and a LOT of movies.

Be sure and rate us on iTunes!
