#WranglingFromHome (WFH)

March 13, 2020

There’s been a lot of hard news to adapt to in recent days and weeks. The world is a serious place right now, and I know we’re all hoping for the health and economic trends to shift toward the positive soon.

Meanwhile, if you’re like me, it can be comforting to do some constructive work with colleagues online. Nothing replaces face-to-face interaction, but we can do a lot of good work collaborating electronically with the right tools. It’s good to stay busy.

With so many of us working from home, we’re getting a quick reassessment of the value of collaboration technology. Personally, I’ve spent hours in large-group video chats this week—I’m even teaching my university classes over video conference. Shared docs have become a primary place to brainstorm with my colleagues, and that pen-based tablet turns out to have been a great investment. I genuinely undervalued these technologies; now I’m coming to depend on them. My thanks to all the folks working hard on that software and the infrastructure that supports it.

For those of us that work with data, we’re probably Wrangling From Home for the next while. To that end, this is a good time to learn about the collaboration and sharing features in your data stack.

If you wrangle data in Trifacta, Google Cloud Dataprep, IBM Advanced Data Preparation or a related solution from one of our partners, here are two resources that might be helpful:

  • Our training videos show how you can collaborate and share your Data Wrangling work
  • You can share Macros, UDFs and Connectors via the Wrangle Exchange.

If you aren’t using Trifacta to prep your data, consider checking it out—it’s free for personal use. Trifacta is cloud-hosted, browser-based, highly visual and user-friendly, and scales incrementally with the people and data in your organization.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us via in-app assistance, and be sure to reach out to others via the Trifacta Community.

Be well.

Joe
