Queried Wikidata with SPARQL
Just dabbling in a bit of querying Wikidata using SPARQL, as a little peek into the potential of questions we can ask the dataset

Ideally this query is supposed to fetch the list of other works that the cast of the viral show Squid Game have starred in, at least to Wikidata's knowledge (there certainly will be gaps)

https://w.wiki/4EhN

I'm sure this could probably be generalized to find other works that the cast of any specified work(s) have starred in...

Used Azure DevOps
Developed in Dynamics CRM
First day of getting a feel of what it's like to be working on a CRM project in Avanade

Also first time getting to grips with Azure DevOps, or at least dabbling with the Kanban board

Edited Wikidata items
Created Wikidata items
Usually most days I go around on Wikidata editing various items in my free time, but in the last few days I've directed a bit more focus towards items relating to the Paralympics and para-athletes, since I've been kinda hooked on and inspired by the live matches on YouTube

Most of my edits involved linking notable para-athletes to their social media accounts, or indicating the sporting events in which they participated

Even created a few items for notable para-athletes (e.g. Singaporean shot putter Muhammad Diroy Noordin)

Seeing that the Paralympics tend to get overshadowed by the Olympics, enriching the data on Paralympians through Wikidata could potentially boost their visibility

Started playing a game
Started playing NEO: The World Ends With You, a sequel game coming in nearly a decade and a half after the first game. I remember spending hours on the original on the Nintendo DS, and it's pretty wild to see the super niche IP see a follow-up.

First impressions are quite positive: seems to have captured the spirit of the first game, which is impressive considering the move from 2D to 3D + the updated combat mechanics. Game oozes style in its aesthetic. Also has nice callbacks to fans of the first TWEWY game.

Learning Dynamics 365
Concluded an 8-week training programme focused on learning Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM, with some hands-on exercises developing solutions, cumulating in a final MCQ assessment

Being a complete newbie to anything remotely related to CRM, it's certainly given me insight into an important facet of business operations... could possibly be complementary with applications of data analysis / science?
