Writing on the Dunnhumby Engineering Blog

Dunnhumby is a retail data science company that I’ve been working with lately. I’ve enjoyed writing a couple of articles for their Data Science and Engineering blog.

The first is a slightly extended version of an article on here, Scala Types in Scio Pipelines.

The more recent article is original and talks about the experiences we’ve had putting together streaming demos of real-time streaming data processing solutions. If you’re interested, you can find that article at Building Live Streaming Demos

It was also an opportunity to try medium.com out as a technical author. I found the difficulty in inserting code snippets (you embed Codepen or Github snippets, but it’s a bit inconvenient compared to just writing the code) and the lack of version control to be the main downsides. The polish and support for writing for a third-party publication were upsides.

Thanks to Dunnhumby for the opportunity to write on their blog!
