Project Description

Similar to software engineering teams, data teams write and ship code that must execute in a production environment. Performing code reviews helps to ensure the integrity of this code, and often catches logic and style errors missed during initial development.

In this project, you'll take on the role of a Senior Data Scientist, performing a code review for a Junior Data Scientist in your team. You'll review and make changes to their logic to ingest, clean, and visualize smartphone data to make sure it follows Python best practices, such as adhering to PEP-8 and DRY principles, as well as readability and documentation.

Data Engineer

Hi all! I'm Jake, a Data Engineer and DataCamp Instructor. I use Python and Airflow to extract, transform, and load data into a state-of-the-art data platform powered by Astronomer, AWS, MongoDB and Postgres. I'm born and raised in Buffalo, NY, so I'm used to seeing a Snowflake or two. When I'm not working with data, you can find me out at the golf course playing a quick nine holes before dark!
