A small introduction about myself

Simon Späti

Data & Business Intelligence Engineer from Switzerland

.. with a flair for data science / passionate about data / curious in life

About Now (What is this, my little page there)

At the moment I'm investigating more time in #dataenigineering and how business intelligence will adapt to it (see more my latest blog-post). As well I'm brainstorming how we can become better at communication in midsize and bigger companies with using less time writing emails and attending unnecessary meetings (stay tuned, new blog post to come!).

On the data science journey, I set myself a private project which is very fun to work where I'm using Python and Pandas. But more to come later, stay tuned.

At the same time, I finished the newest audiobook from Tony Robbins, Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook. If you want to save some money in the long run, please read it, it is outstanding and straight to the point! Also, I started another stoic audiobook called The Tao of Seneca: Practical Letters from a Stoic Master which I truly enjoy and also puts me back to essentials of life whenever I feel all over. Aaaand I bought my first physical book in a very long time from my favourite author Tim Ferriss called Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World with a rating 4.5 (out of 5) on Amazon. This book is also entirely recommendable.

During my day job, I'm finishing off my latest projects and packing my things in my apartment as I am moving back to Switzerland any time soon. So if you are around Bern/Zürich, let me know.
