    After your morning Scrum standup, Jingting sends you a Pull Request. She introduced a new messaging system to speed up the transfer of data from the ERP system.

He wants to discuss and design a new architecture to provide the Finance department with insights about Customer Service costs. 

    Just before lunch, you pass by Cheryl, a data scientist who's working on a new Machine Learning algorithm that can forecast warehouse stock. You help her moving some data to BigQuery. You invite her to have lunch together with your team. On the way back, you share your concerns about the Email Marketing ingest process with Daniëlle as It is losing records, so you want to refactor some of the Python code. You add a few automated tests and send the Pull Request to your teammate, Cindy, for review.
