This challenge is the result of a “learning by doing” process within the Like A Coffee Community, a team work carried out with other Junior talents and mentors of this community. After the first training courses, we have activated a process of inspiration and design and we have come to the definition of this and other challenges. The aim we had during its development has always been to learn new aspects of data science and at the same time find a practical application in the @LAC model.
The theme of this challenge was born within the experiences of design thinking and project management that we usually face in projects. The importance of writing a correct user story concerns not only the project owner but also the designer and the developer. Having correct and well written user stories improves the quality of communication between all those involved in the project during its development.

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.

Before to start with the description and analysis of our challenge, we would like to introduce some concepts and definitions used in this paper in order to facilitate the understanding.
Like A Coffee (LAC): community of people in ICT sector which has among its objectives the growth and creating new opportunities for its members in a Human Oriented Environment.
Talent: an IT student close to complete his study path(or fresh graduate) which get in touch with LAC to start his new path in the working world.
Mentor: a senior LAC member which has the task of following Talents from technical point of view
Talent Manager (TM): a LAC member which has the task of following Talents from no technical point of view, eg: administrative, motivational, communicative, etc.
Talent Journey: it’s the journey made by a Talent from being a student to being ready for a customer project(Junior)
Talent Management System(TMS): (still in progress) it is an internal tool used by LAC to manage and monitor talents activities.
