Growing up, love has been idolized in our minds.

When TraceTogether was rolled out in Singapore, I geeked out with the BlueTrace Protocol and the basics of how it worked. However, with my experience of volunteering for the migrant population, I knew that we needed translations, badly.

I always tend to organize every aspect of my experiments with organizers as useful as Pipeline. However, one shouldn’t be passing continuous variables into a OneHotEncoder or vice versa for Scalers. The solution is, split your data, treat them in separate pipelines before merging them together again. Inspired by Scikit Learn Examples.
I found myself the problem of counting the occurrence of specific “days of the week” between two dates. And thankfully, good old PostgreSQL came to the rescue!
