Code generation for non-experts
San Francisco, Oct. 21, 2021
Databricks has acquired German startup 8080 Labs. Background: 8080 Labs has developed a code generation tool for non-experts . According to Databricks, this will help them make their own AI and data analytics software more accessible to more customers by integrating this tool with the Lakehouse platform.
Developed by 8080 Labs, bamboolib is a UI-based data science tool that generates native code for people without programming skills. The expanded deployment capabilities would help significantly more companies leverage data without having to hire experts.
8080 Labs is backed by Amazon and Google and was involved in the development of the open source Apache Spark data processing software for AI/ML training. The San Francisco-based company works with the three largest public cloud providers: AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
Earlier this year, the company secured $1.6 billion in a Series H at a $38 billion valuation. Just a few months earlier, the company raised $1 billion at a $28 billion valuation. The startup is expected to exceed $1 billion in revenue in 2022.
