🔔 Announcement

We're thrilled to announce Humans Behind Code!

Humans Behind Code (HBC) is a project by FAUN, where developers meet other developers and learn about the people behind the tools, libraries, frameworks, and other projects they use to build their applications.

We interview developers and ask them about their projects, their motivations, their struggles, and their successes. It's about sharing knowledge and helping each other grow.

👉 If you're a Developer or a maintainer of a widely adopted Open Source project and you think it's worth talking about it and your experiences in building it, join Humans Behind Code!

Best,
Aymen from FAUN.

Processing Healthcare Data Files with Serverless GCP
 
 
Data in Healthcare today emanates from a wide variety of sources including exports of patient clinical data, wearables and devices. This means that it can arrive in various formats, so it’s vital to make sure the files are “clean” before uploading them to the cloud.

Using Cloud Functions to transform the data, we can then load it to BigQuery for analytics and processing.

We need a quick and easy way to ensure they’re in good shape when we transfer them to ensure high quality analytics downstream.
