Happy Friday Atlassian Community!
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the first weekend of the summer. (Sorry Atlassian's Down Under, but you already had your summer - it's our turn now) As the song goes, School's out for Summer! The kids are home, trips are being planned and in general we are getting more active as the weather clears up and the days heat up.
As an avid cyclist myself, I love the summer months. It means early morning rides with the rays of sun shining through lush trees, afternoon walks and evening strolls with my wife.
As an avid data nerd, I almost never start a ride, walk, jog or any activity that is not just the normal mobility of the day without turning on an activity tracker. My trackers of choice are a Garmin 520 head unit on my bike and my Apple Watch (a recent birthday gift and major upgrade from my Garmin Vivoactive 3). And all of that data posts to the Apple Health App and Strava (some public, most private - who needs their feed littered with 1.5 mile daily commute 2x day on a CitiBike from the train terminal to my office). And that's where my fun continues, slicing and dicing the data of a one mile walk the same as i would a 100 mile ride on the bike!
So here's where Friday Fun comes in.
There is a lot of 'data privacy' conversation around the disclosing and use of activity based information. Strava has gotten in trouble - back in 2018 - for publishing data that revealed the location and layout of US Military bases. If you have any thoughts on this, post them in the thread too!
And most of all - have a great weekend!
