Max walks the Bros through his recipe for a smart data-driven company, and the genesis of Airflow, Superset & Presto (with some great tidbits about Airflow's old school marketing approach and how the open source platform took on a life of its own).
According to Yoav Shmaria, VP R&D Platform at Similarweb, the best way to manage data warehouse costs is tagging every table, database or ETL running to have good granularity over every feature.
