This project was inspired by my work with Trulia and Rover. The goal of this project was to provide marketing analysts, who are unfamiliar with software development, an easy way to access REST API functionality from a marketing automation platform called Marketo. The power in this tool was to create internal databases that might incorporate data outside of Marketo as well as schedule recurring jobs such as fetching created leads, updating changes from Salesforce, etc.
Working in real estate, I had the desire for a Python package that would validate Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) correctly based on the county in the United States. I also needed a way to access formats when providing front end user flags. Successfully published to Python’s package library
I have been involved in several personal projects that heavily rely upon data collection. This involved leveraging regex, digesting HTML, JSON and XML body formats, and establishing processes for cleaning and validation. One example is a traffic service that takes a user’s location and attempts to predict traffic patterns based on local events. Several factors were involved including distance, estimated attendance, and frequency. I had to collect this data from multiple sources, normalize it, and ultimately create standardized objects that are understood by the service.
