Hello I have a question. What will be the main differentiator between Flyte and Metaflow? Gotta create slides for the business function 😂. Thanks

So metaflow is just a python library, does not really have a native orchestrator. It has no real data awareness and automatic parallelization of steps.
I think it does work well for small and simple - linear projects, but hard to evolve to complex projects.
It does not have an extensible model of backend plugins and types that make Flyte easy to adopt, evolve and reduces boilerplate.
On the flip side metaflow is an easier

There are many other differences
Also known users of metaflow vs Flyte you already can tell

Would second the points re: a python lib vs a native orchestrator, another powerful difference is the ability to use the "workflow-of-workflows", or subworkflows pattern. This was a major benefit we saw when evaluating Flyte vs Metaflow (& other alternatives such as Kubeflow)
