This is my third attempt at writing a blog. My first was forgotten shortly after the birth of my eldest. The second was abandoned during a tough period at work. A previous employer had drastically cut their workforce. Keeping my team afloat had become a daily grind. One which took over my life. I've since changed jobs and my children are a little older.
I am a data engineer and team lead. Right now I'm working on a real time data analytics platform. It's exciting stuff, and I hope to cover some of the more interesting challenges we encounter. It is a green field project and we're working with and looking at some very cool technologies. Yet more inspiration for future posts. Mostly I'll be talking data, software development and things related to technology. But I reserve the right to drift off course and meander around subjects I find interesting.
Hopefully I'll stick with it this time.
