I’m an analytics guy – I crunch data, build websites, and occaisonally stand up in front of large groups of people and mutter a few semi-inspiring words. I like Python – particularly the bottle.py webframework – although I’m quickly growing fond of WordPress. In truth, I’m probably more of a marketer than a coder, although I can happily live in both worlds.
Links to stuff that I’ve built and will publically own up to:
Python & Analytics Work…
- I’ve got a blog about Python, Analytics, and other fun subjects… check out our great materials about the bottle.py framework and website revenue models.
- The latter materials were repackaged into a python calculator framework which I’m putting the finishing touches on – a working proof of concept is here.
- And since I wanted to test using Python and Bottle.py on Google App Engine, I decided to create a highly frivolous demo (lemonade stand revenue calculator).
- I’ve got another project in the works – a way to turn spreadsheets into websites.
Word Game Solvers
- I created the one, the only Hanging Hyena. We’ve got some awesome solver tools for hangman, a hanging with friends cheat, and a scramble with friends cheat…
- And just launched a new site – a scrabble cheat – focusing on scrabble.
- All of these were built using bottle.py for the main application; We use WordPress to fill in the gaps around marketing and static content management…
I’ve given a couple of talks in the past several years:
- I’m a semi-regular presenter at PyATL – presentations can be found here.
- Spoke at IQPC’s Pricing and Revenue Management Summit this past summer; ironically my first public talk about my day job (pricing and analytics)
- Spoke at Microstrategy World 2010 about using Microstrategy and Salesforce.com to build out an analytics-based sales management system.
I can be contacted through any of the websites above – at this point, I’ve got a bazillion different admin emails floating around, most of which are routed to the right place. Don’t even think about spamming me, I moderate with an iron fist
