Once (or twice) in a Blue Moon

It’s been one of those bizarre weeks at work, but ended with a big award for designing and implementing two things – a Distributed Data Dictionary that inventories and catalogs database objects across all MySQL, PostgreSQL and Bigquery databases, and a system called Universal Customer Reporting, which provides data to Data Scientists in a way that is modular, meaning re-usable, scalable and flexible. The problem with Big Data data stores is that they become junk yards of experiments and disorganized wastes of huge amounts of data. Not “Data Lakes” – but “Data Junkyards”.

The week started with some frustration but ended on as good a note as I could have hoped for.
