With every job you can sometimes you have lulls in how much you’re actually delivering. It’s a fact of life.
But then there are the times when you actually, and substantially, add value. Today was one of those days for me. Looking at some data (with Mathematica from a few days ago) I was able to tease out some fraud from our system. Fraud that would cost us a shit-ton of money.
It took a few days of churning away at some data we were able to get… and then a bit of a victory.
These are the days that I really like. The days that you make something cool.
