  • At first I learned all the basics of working with Salesforce: processing leads, merging contacts, creating reports, finding duplicates, etc.
  • After a while I recognized that some of these tasks can be automated. I came up with a Python script to automatically guess a customer's gender with an accuracy of >87%. Invalid data was ignored.
  • Another script I wrote was to automatically add zip codes, given a correct address.
  • Currently I am working on a more complex system to find duplicates.

  • My main task was to restore old magazine articles from the 1930s that were in poor condition. I extracted most of the included texts using OCR methods. The respective illustrations were enhanced using GIMP. Afterwards they looked as good as new.
  • Besides I created a website to calculate dress sizes. A person's measurements were taken as an input and the most suitable dress size was returned. The calculator was created using JavaScript.
