        I think that Boris would like the file that you used to import your data into Lumira.

        In fact, so would I.

        Perhaps creating a database showcasing all of the great works created with certain data sets is in order.

    Dear Suseelan,

    Very good analysis about people who are looking for a current job and others are looking for a career.
    I’m FI planning to be BPC and i was going to choose another module just to get the job which is 4 digit salary although that i’m still junior, so thanks a lot to make me remain on my career path.

              Hi Dev,

              We need to respect our SCN rules. I will try to understand each and every thing. Then I will post accordingly. If they would have informed me earlier. I would have posted as per SCN rules. Suddenly they are deleting after I posted many blogs. I feel thats not fair. 😥

                Some moderators write the reason for rejecting the blog.

                And about the coffee corner, all blogs and documents are deleted from Coffee Corner with regards to a Poll.
