Time Entries [Challenge]

By Pasquale Scudieri, Luigi Cutolo

Datawarehouse and Data Science are two hot topics in the world of programming, their presence is increasingly in demand, and it is precisely from this that the idea of this challenge was born.

The scope was to create an algorithm capable of recognizing the activity labels of each time entry and using this as an objective,and meanwhile, to create a database capable of containing those entries in a single environment, which brings together all the different sources currently in use in our community.

To achieve this goal we have created a series of algorithms that will be briefly described in this paper, starting with the decision of the database to be used, then moving on to the study of data, analysis and cleaning of the latter, and finally actually build one or more clustering algorithms, which were able to assign a label to each entry.

We understood that creating a textual clusterization algorithm, when the textual content is so large, is not an easy task to complete, but the result seemed very pleasing to us.

This paper follows our line of thought as we developed the project, highlighting our doubts and certainties. Our study noted the difficulty in developing an application of this kind, but also how useful it was to our training, which in the end was what we were aiming for.

Data science research project

Our data science team is continuing its journey with elearning courses on the languages and approaches to use and with continuous comparisons with mentors.

Challenges will soon begin in which they will measure themselves with the first applications


This video tells the story of the first period of training and research activities of the Data Science working group of Like a Coffee

The research projects in which we involve the Talents who approach our community have the primary objective of making us grow

To learn
to experiment
and to share the new knowledge acquired within our community

This is a very short video that we shot during one of our work sessions at Palazzo Innovazione

The members of the research team of this Data Science project are:
Francesco Casillo Francesco Marzullo Pasquale Scudieri Luigi Cutolo Antonio Torre e Giuseppe Jepis Rivello

The new talent Francesco, Pasquale and Francesco coming from Università degli Studi di Salerno Dipartimento di Informatica, Università di Salerno

with Francesco Casillo, Pasquale Scudieri, Francesco Marzullo, Luigi Cutolo, Antonio Torre and Giuseppe Rivello

Luigi Cutolo OnBoarding into the customer’s project with Technical Mentorship of Antonio Torre

Talent to Expert Journey is an experience of several months and involves different characters of the Like A Coffee Community. In addition to the Talent himself , Technological Mentor, Project Manager, Design Thinker and at least one Business Mentor are also directly involved in the process.

This process results in Onboarding of junior developer into Like A Coffee partner’s projects, where Talent gets real project experience within a development team of big company. We in Like A Coffee strongly believe that mentored onboarding is part of successful Talent to Expert Journey, and it makes all involved sides (LAC partner, Talent and LAC responsible persons) confident about the result.

few months ago we were telling the story of Luigi’s journey, passing through the most significant steps:

My thesis in DevOps Testing [part 1] >>

My thesis in DevOps Testing / Talent-Mentor Conversation [part 2] >>

We have collected feedback about the Onboarding in a new video where  Antonio and Luigi tell us about their feelings and their experience during a mentored onboarding phase:

Time Assistant development Story by Luigi Cutolo and Antonio Torre

Time Assistant is a web and mobile  application of Like A Coffee community developed by Luigi Cutolo during his Talent to Expert Journey.

This is  mobile app that aims to facilitate developer’s time tracking.

It allows Talents to  track their activities via their smartphones or web and synchronize them with the Project management tool and calendar of activities.
Here you can see a small video with Antonio Torre an Luigi Cutolo during a development session:

Development of this application has helped Luigi to follow the whole process of developing an application from scratch:

Ideation and designing in cooperation with Design Thinker and Talent Manager

User stories structure in cooperation with Project Manager

Sprint and Agile development in cooperation with Project Manager and Tech Mentor

Testing and Delivery with Tech Mentor

PRESO TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT SPEECH

Last week we rolled out a live streaming from our Youtube channel to share the knowledge gained in the Preso experimental project with the whole Like A Coffee community.

For those of you who missed it, Preso is an IoT smart outlet that allows you to control any of your plugged-in household devices performance and to monitor your home power consumption directly from your smart PresoApp.

 

Why can it be important for you, potential talent, to get to know something more on how we carried out this project development?

 

  • First of all, because you can exclusively take a look behind the scenes on how we actually dealt with such a complex research project effectively in a remote way within a cross-cultural environment.
  • Secondly, because you can get insights on how such a project was managed.
  • And, finally, because you can get an educational opportunity for free by means of an interactive lesson. You can actively take part in the discussion by commenting or by asking questions to the expert panel in real time and being answered right away.

 

Preso is one of our experimental projects in IoT where some of our talents played a great role in, both on a software – and on a development part.

As the video begins, Filomena gives the big picture on it to you, tuned-in community, and introduces three members of the Preso dev team who dealt with different development aspect of it:

 

Attilio, IoT specialist and Head of “Steam Port, IoT lab” situated in Southern Italy, who showed more in detail:

  • the hardware components Preso is made up of;
  • the software technologies used for its prototyping;
  • the communication protocols used in the various iterations;
  • the data collecting system.

 

Giuseppe, Talent Full Stack web developer, involved in Preso as experimental project, who explained to our community:

  • The whole architecture system of the PresoApp, namely DB, a focus both on IoT back-end and main back-end and one on the front-end;
  • The full stack technology used.

 

Emils, Talent Front-end web developer and involved in the project as IT project manager intern who shared with us his experience with respect to:

  • how he integrated later in a running software development project within a remote team;
  • the messaging applications used;
  • The tools to handle a the workflow, the common code versioning and the mock-ups prototyping, in cooperation with our designer Giuseppe.

 

It goes without saying that also other worth-mentioning team members actively worked on this project: our tireless mentors Antonio and János and our Talent Luigi.

Because Together Everyone Achieves More.
