About me

Data and coding projects together with useful resources is what I am looking to share with you to help you gain knowledge from your data.

Why did I create this website?

Do you ever do a course and think you understand it at the time?

Hands up if you then go on to create your own small project afterwards to test your learning. I didn’t raise my hand as in my case in the past it’s been very rare that I’ve tested myself. Therefore I’ve set up this website as:

  • a means of challenging and encouraging myself to apply my learning to real life situations and datasets, and
  • in case this helps or inspires you to apply knowledge learnt in a course (in any topic) to create your own projects, and
  • to provide resources which I have found useful to my learning

Background

Over the past couple of years I have invested a lot of time and money into courses and foregone income to learn to write code with an emphasis placed on coding to analyse and visualise data. This includes obtaining a Masters in IT with Business Intelligence and undertakimg a Professional Software Development course (a summary of which can be found at https://pac9.github.io/) .

During this time I’ve discovered somethings I thought were difficult to do, weren’t quite as difficult as I first imagined. I want to show you how easy somethings are to do if you know where to start. I want to demystify them and encourage you to give them a go.

I have also broadened my knowledge when it come to analysing data and the uses to which the results can be put. I’d like to share some of what I have learnt with you in case this is of use to you.

Thank you for visiting my site!
