I have been fondly fascinated with the emerging trend of Data Science and the high demand for data analysts in the current market. My preferred tool for this job is R, since it has all the powerful packages to get the job done!
This curiosity led me to participate in iXperience program to learn more about this amazing field.
My most important data science skills can be shown with my projects:
Data Analysis and ShinyApp: Created a dashboard for marketers where they can see at a glance all their sales channels and their results: AdWords, Facebook and Traffic.
Machine Learning Models: As a Kaggle user, I participated trying to predict Walmart's Sales
Data Scraping and Cleaning: Twitter has a huge amount of data to analyze (text scraping) and find value. Created a Flight Recommendations TwitterBot.
Four years of programming experience has given me the tools to be a Software Developer Ninja
I enjoy working on full-stack development, back-end development and mobile applications
Check out my recent projects and let me know what you think:
Android: Built a Flight Search app for Android OS.
Ruby on Rails: Currently learning more about RoR, created a Blog website to host many different users and my current startup runs on RoR as well (contact me if want to see the repo).
I love putting all my knowledge and skills into developing new and valuable products while learning a lot. That is why, my working experience has given me the ability to work alongside bright people that have pushed my boundaries into what can be done. Tight deadlines, changing project requirements and agile development can summarize my experience on the field.
Even though, I have never worked on a pure software company, software development is pivotal for many businesses.
Analytics API Python: Built multiple API endpoints to allow developers to query the company's database in a easier fashion and abstracting all schema details.
Product Rotation System:Worked in a team that designed and developed a Machine Learning model to predict sales based on different stock rotations by product type.
Ponti Website:Collaborated with a team into developing the front-end of www.ponti.com.ec as it is a new sales strategy for the company to become the greatest shoe retailer in the country. Hosted on Shopify but poduct migration, updates and front-end was done in-house.
If I were to pick something to do for life, I would pick learning. Not just learning from textbooks but actually going out there and discover how things work and let my curiosity fly.
At the University of Toronto the relevant courses that I have taken are:
First Year:Introduction to Computer Science, Discrete Mathematics, Price Theory, Calculus, Linear Algebra
Second Year:Software Design, Introduction to Probability, Theory of Computation, Software Tools and Systems Programming, Data Structures and Algorithms,
Third Year:(current) Introduction to Software Engineering, Web Programming, Design of Interactive Computational Media and Operating Systems.
Also, I am a big enthusiast of taking online courses aka MOOC to broaden my skills out of the classroom.
I have taken the following courses online:
Android App Development , Udacity
Intro to HTML and CSS, Udacity
Complete Ruby on Rails Developer Course, Udemy
Startup Engineering, Coursera
