My name is Jason Dexter and I’m an
Data-Analyst based out of Berkeley, CA, where I live with my wife 💃 and our two cats 🐈 🐈
In graduate school I was introduced to programming, first
Python. The idea 💡 of solving problems programmatically resonated deeply with me and I’ve been hooked ever since.
I’m a nerd 🤓 when it comes to automating data manipulation - there’s something intoxicating about the process of wrangling data using
code - it’s simply amazing!
I find immense satisfaction in determining the shape data needs to be in, then programmatically crafting a solution to transform the raw-data into something useful.
Eventually I gravitated towards
R, especially after Matt Dancho introduced me to the
Tidyverse. Matt has an online learning platform for Data Science that has been a real game-changer for me.
It’s called Business Science Unviersity and I can’t recommend it enough.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Exploring-Data will take an
R-Centric approach to Wrangling + Exploring data. The posts will typically be bite-size with content that is applicable - my goal is to have the posts act as a library of useful tips + tricks for programmatically solving problems related to data.
I personally find the
R language to be deeply satisfying to learn. The options really are endless.
More importantly, the
R-Community is hands down top-notch 😎
