I hope it is not late to write out my plans for the year 2020. My volunteer work with the TechLadies will come to an end, this March. The TechLadies is recruiting the new core team for the year 2020. The upcoming boot-camp graduation will introduce the new team to the community. Then, the year 2019 core team will pass the baton to the new team.
Will I still continue volunteering with TechLadies?
I have this question in my mind lately, and I am not sure how the TechLadies plans for it. I am quite sure there it would be a great idea to let a new team leads the community. New team, new ideas and directions.
I may consider taking a side role to continue on the study group sessions. But, I also hope that someone is going to plan and run the study group sessions together. If not, then I will be slowly running the events as and when I am available. I am not sure whether a mobile study group will work in Singapore.
Besides TechLadies, what else?
Good question. I have a plan to conduct, learn and teach program after being inspired by my classmate. This program teaches the community (not necessarily must be within TechLadies) of what I learned recently.
I will randomly pick up a topic to learn and share to the community via my blog or private meet-ups. I hope to get more interaction between community members, instead of just giving inputs without receiving feedback from the community.
I hope I will write and share more technical stuff through my blog here as well as my posts in the Medium website.
I am looking out for other communities in Singapore that work closely on master data management (MDM), focuses on SQL and NoSQL databases, work on data engineering and use Power BI for data visualization.
I am not going away from my core interest, the databases. Also, I want to go in-depth into master data management and will consider taking some of the courses or certifications in this area. Next, I need to upskill and gain essential experience in the data engineering field while continue exploring the data visualization with Power BI. I am still looking out for Data Engineering meetup or users group in Singapore. Do you know any?
Not to forget, I am doing my data analytics in my final module in Temasek Poly. It is going to be an end-to-end data specialization when I graduate with my Specialized Diploma in Business Analytics this April.
Complete my Python course!
Last but not least, I want to complete my Python course before I graduate too, so that everything is fresh in my mind. Right now, I have completed 10/26 modules. I still need to complete some Pandas, statistics and machine learning topics before the end of February. Maybe, I will take a bit time off from other activities to focus on study and work.
