European UniCycle 2020 – A gentle bike ride from Spain to Norway

Europe Cycle - Tarifa to North Cape

Following a great first year establishing Data Minister as provider of DBA expertise, and working with some fantastic clients, I’ll now be taking a break for a few months to attempt a cycle ride covering the length of continental Europe.

To bring a data-aspect to my cycle tour, I’ve built a simple GPS location logging system, that you can use to follow my progress. For this, I’ve used a few technologies that I’ve recently been learning while I studied for the Microsoft Professional Program Big Data qualification. These include Azure SQL Database, Azure Data Factory and Power BI, along with a useful GPS Logger application.

I will aim to produce to few posts when I return, explaining in more detail about how each component works. If you’d like to follow my progress, the map showing my latest location can be found on this page, along with a few photos from my Instagram feed.

I shall be returning to take on some more data-based contracts circa July 2020. See you then!
