Wat heb ik nu zoal gehad? Eerste maand psychologie. Erg veel verplicht, erg veel toetsen, maar de stof is erg leuk en interessant. Eerste maand zwemmen. Trainer bevalt tot nu toe heel erg goede en ook het trainen zelf gaat goed.

Heb eerste trainingsweekend van de KNZB er ook al weer opzitten en we zijn daar tot de ontdekking gekomen dat bij alle 5 aanwezige schoolslagzwemmers een afzet zónder slag onder water sneller (ongeveer 0.4 sec) is dan mét... Verder zit ook de eerste lactaatmeting er weer op (15,2 mmol/l -> pijn!) dus ben al helemaal klaar voor de 1e wedstrijd (a-competitie in Denekamp).

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that. Recorded live with audience pre-covid-19 at the Conversion Hotel conference in november 2019 on the island of Texel in The Netherlands. (oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd op https://www.cro.cafe/)
