Getting Up To Speed For Data Science: Attitude

At the end of last year I was losing faith in my ability to study Data Science. Even though I had had a good first contact week, the material was incredibly difficult for me to understand. Following that, I wanted to work hard on my maths, but really had to start at a much lower point Read More

When Inspiration Rings, Answer The Call

Lately I’ve been thinking about communication and knowledge sharing and collaboration and all that good stuff. These things excite and inspire me and when I express that, I feel great. Unfortunately, my introverted nature coupled with my desire to get everything done right now makes it difficult for me to spend time working on the communication Read More

Coming Clean On Frustration

Yesterday I wrote a post about how frustrating this game, slither.io, can be. On reflection, it wasn’t really the game at all.

Welcome To IainSaunders.uk!

After much consideration, and discussing several different options with my lovely wife, I have finally decided to go ahead with my own website; IainSaunders.uk. Welcome!
