Organising Bookmarks More Usefully

One of the troubles with attempting to be a self-driven learner is that organising everything is up to you. Being in control of how and when learning happens is great, but being told what to learn and when and being directed to the material simplifies so much! So this is what I’m lamenting after my contact Read More

Internal Company Blogs Are A Thing!?

I may not be a big talker, but I love communication. Why else would I blog? Something that comes into my mind now and then is communication at the workplace. It’s easy to just start a chat in the kitchen while making a cup of tea with anyone, which I really like. And Microsoft Teams makes Read More

Hello Trello My Old Friend

So a long time ago now, I discovered Trello and became very friendly with it. At the time I was overloaded and disorganised and something had to be done. Trello’s simple card system is like digital Post-Its on a board, and is a great start. However, I didn’t find that it suited routines particularly well. There Read More

12 Week Year

At some point over the last couple of years, I came across a book titled The 12 Week Year. I haven’t actually read the entire book unfortunately but I did learn a valuable lesson.

How Complicated Is Linear Regression Really?

For the last few months, I’ve been looking at linear regression and trying to understand what it is and why it appears so much in business analytics courses. It has something to do with mathematics and statistics, but the only word that I really understood in it was linear. I’m still not sure I understand it Read More

Lazy Analysis From Google Analytics

It seems that the more I learn about my role, the more keywords I gain and start searching for. I then stumble across more keywords and eventually find myself falling down the rabbit hole, wondering where it will end, much like Alice in Wonderland.

Machine Learning as a Service

Today and yesterday, I spent hours and hours doing repetitive work between my browser and Excel. I had a list of terms to search for and had to copy down the results I found back into the spreadsheet, with links. It was so long, I had to just stop sometimes to prevent myself going mad! The Read More
