Hi everyone! I'm Asan Arifov, a Backend Software Engineer, SLB based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I have experience designing and developing applications with advanced customer specific logic based on SLB DELFI Production Data Foundation and quite excited to see how things are implemented in CDF.

Another point of my interest is OSDU CDF interface.

Flexibility and Performance. No operational data platform I know managed to achieve both at the same time, but it looks like CDF hit the point. Looking forward to the course and coming projects.

Happy to join you all,

Hi everyone, 

I’m Kimmie McKenzie and I am currently interning with Southern Company Services in Birmingham Alabama. My background is IT. I am a senior at The University of Alabama at Birmingham with a major in Information Systems, a concentration in Cybersecurity, and a minor in Spanish. Throughout my academic and professional career, I have realized that my passion lies in real estate; however, I will continue my degree as well as my internship and simply do the best that I can even though this is not my passion. 

One of my coworkers expressed their interest in using Cognite and would like for me to present a project of what my department can do with it. I will need all the help I can get!
