Week's successes

Standup logs

Monday

What did you do yesterday? Did some extraction pipeline refactors and testing while traveling.

What will you do today? Refactor downstream pipelines, namely the cluster computations. Need to segment out steps a little more sensibly, and make it easy to create pipelines that are essentially the same but where the clustering step is different (i.e. uses a different algorithm). So refactor, add more configuration, add more logging, and add tests.

What, if anything, is blocking your progress? Time? Idk.

Tuesday

What did you do yesterday? Made a wee bit of progress on refactoring the clustering pipeline, dedicated more time to non-work things.

What will you do today? Aim to finish refactoring the clustering pipeline!

What, if anything, is blocking your progress? Nada.

Wednesday

What did you do yesterday? Finished refactoring the clustering pipeline and added tests for it.

What will you do today? Work on the other project.

What, if anything, is blocking your progress? N/A

Cheers,
