Data Science

My most recent article "Jupyter Notebook to Data Pipeline" was published on Medium. It describes my observations from building an automated data pipeline using Python, Jupyther Notebooks, and AWS for automation.

This article was written during "Data Science Bootcamp" which I attended 2022/2023.

360 Manager experience

In 2020 I published an article in two parts about my experience in 15Five's "Best Self and Upward's Review". This review is 360 manager review to improve management performance in an organization. In the articles I chronical the insights I gained personally and professionally going through this process as a software development manager at NewStore

Part One "Manager review — Visualize to get the full picture" describes the process derived from Google's 13 famous Manager feedback questions. It further shows how I visualized the data to get better inside.

In part two "Manager review — How to dig for gold" I expand on the visualization of the data and how to gain deeper insides from the charts chosen.


JUC West 2015

In 2015 I gave a presentation about "Developing Enterprise-Ready Plugins" at the Jenkins User Conference U.S. West. I presented what we learned developing the "Jenkins Plugin for Black Duck Software". The plugin allowed "Open Source Discovery" as part of a Jenkins build pipeline.

Sapphire 1995

While at SAP I presented at the annual SAP Users Conference, called SAPPHIRE. It's such a long time ago that I don't remember what my presentation was all about. I just remember that I had an intimidating audience of ~ 400 people in a big auditorium. While I was used to giving training in front of 10 -20 people, such a big audience did scare me a bit. The best memory of that presentation I still remember today was getting the people's attention by making a joke about my name.

I attended SAPPHIRE the next year (1996) again. However, I was only part of the staff at the booth and did not give a presentation. I was part of the new team informing SAP customers about the brand-new module SAP Environmental, Health & Safety (SAP EH&S).
