Data Science Journey Entry #11

It’s been a long weekend of exams, university catch up from a busy work-week and a couple of great and interesting conversations in terms of career chats surrounding a career in Data Science. I have two more to come tomorrow so it would be possibly to speak on these next week, but it’s fresh in…

Data Science Journey Entry #10

It’s wild to think how far I’ve come. It’s really been an insane week of recognising how far that I’ve come. I find this often. Whenever some event occurs which has the impact of causing a reflection of where we are as well as where we used to be it just results in a simultaneous…

Data Science Journey Entry #9

Last week I began work on a small exercise where I would log my mood in the morning and in the afternoon, as well as the amount of Sun I was exposed to, and finally if I exercised or not and the intensity of that exercise. I essentially wanted to chart what trends would be…

Data Science Journey Entry #8

I’m getting to the mid-way point of my 2nd Semester at University, where I am doing Statistics and Database Management. Once this is done I’ll be able to move onto some more complicated data and analytics next year, which will be the conclusion of my Graduate Certificate of Data Science, after which, all going well,…

Data Science Journey Entry #7

This week marks my third week back at University for Semester 2. I’m doing two subjects, one on Statistics and the other on Databases. They have both been pretty interesting thus far, although they are challenging, especially this week as Statistics begins to take a turn and look at a wide variety of complex formulae…

Data Science Journey Entry #6

Since last week I have almost completed the Brilliant Course on Python, I would have probably have finished it this morning if I did not have a training course at work that demanded a good amount of time from myself. At any rate, I’m hoping to complete it by this evening. Other than that I’ve…

Data Science Journey, Entry #5

Another week passes and it’s hard to say that there has been clear work on Data Science goals, however I have been continuing my progress on my refresher course on Python via Brilliant.org. It’s been a great tool to go over concepts that I learnt when I first studied Python about 3 years ago. Although,…

Data Science Journey, Entry #4

This week I’ve put in place a much more rigorous study regimen with time set aside in the morning and after work in the evening. It’s been a little tricky getting started but it has been really positive so far and I can already feel the positive impacts of having it scheduled from Monday to…

Data Science Journey, Entry #3

My main focus this week is to continue my studies of small online courses as I await for University to resume. When I start I’ll be doing a Statistics Course as I begin to delve into that world of Data Science properly. In the meantime however, I am looking at two courses throughout the week:…

Euros, Statistics and Making Sense

The world of Sports has been moving in with Statistics for some time. The success of films like Money Ball are testament to that. This is to say nothing of simply watching sports, commentators are never too far from a handy or at least interesting Stat to illuminate the importance of any match to the…
