Every Monday we start with a stand-up, discussing what happened last week and what’s going to happen this week. besides informing everyone about your tasks, you’ll get an opportunity to express your personal status as well. The purpose is to get everyone on the same page and up-to-date about the projects. This week I have to propose a new data warehousing architecture that includes a snowflake schema. So I ask my colleagues if anyone has tips and tricks or a template I can use.
Monday morning I start with debugging the scraper I built for a client. The Datetime on the pdf changed to another format. People told me that being a data scientist would be the sexiest job of the 21st century. I’m not sure if they meant to include all the Datetime conversions, haha. However, I fixed it with more robust regular expressions, so it won’t happen again. Next to this, some new suppliers were added to the pdf, so I added the new Supplier ID’s to the SQL database and the second problem of the day was solved!
Today, we have a special day! We celebrate the first birthday of Enjins! So around 4 o’clock, we go chill in the sun on a boat for a few hours through the Amsterdam canals. As a present we got these awesome geeky sweaters.
