Astute readers of this blog have probably noticed a regular new author – we are hugely excited to introduce Anton Parkhomenko to the Snowplow team!
Anton joined us as a Data Engineering intern this summer to launch our new Schema Guru project. Anton was already an experienced software engineer; for him the Snowplow internship was about getting his first professional experience in Scala and Functional Programming, plus gaining exposure to Big Data technologies and open source project practices.
Since then, Anton has worked on quite a variety of key releases, including:
- The Snowplow Scala Tracker, version 0.2.0
- Another Schema Guru release, 0.4.0, with Apache Spark support
- The release of Scala Weather, and now Snowplow R74 which leverages this in the Weather Enrichment
Currently Anton is working on all-new event enrichments, which promise to make Snowplow an ever-more flexible platform for your event analytics. Watch this space!
Welcome to the team Anton!
