Summary

I am happy to be part of the Ordina Pythoneers. Within this context I enjoy interactions between my roles as a Machine Learning Engineer, Solution Architect and Security Aware Programmer; From applications in Python to data modeling in Scikit-learn and PySpark (Hadoop) to privacy aware streaming big data architectures.
