A couple of weeks ago I have had the slowest WordPress page ever! I mean it, I had the chance to eat a sandwich while my page was loading (and whoever knows me knows, I am a slow eater). Not cool… in this post, I will tell you how I fixed it and how you might speed up your own WordPress page.

Another Saturday, another post haha! This time I have some debugging tips for you. You wrote some beautiful code and you run it and DAAAMMMNN it is not working. We have all been there. And it does not really matter whether it has been some really big logical mistake or just a typo. If you are an old player in the coding game, you might know most of the tips… if you are – like me – a novice, they might come in handy!

Today I will write about a really good book on how to visualize data. It is called “Storytelling with Data” and is written by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic. I have read it in only a few hours. In my article about what a data scientist is, I established that a data scientist also has to be a storyteller. This book will help you to create better graphics and charts 🙂

A while back I wrote about what a Data Scientist is. When you are scrolling through Data Science jobs, you might also find postings for jobs as Data Analyst or Data Engineer. Obviously, all three are related to Data Science but what exactly do those job profiles mean? Let’s find out together!

Hello, humans of the internet!
Everyone is talking about Data Science. I wonder how many actually know what it stands for. I myself do have a definition for it. Or at least I know what to tell my friends when they ask me about it. The funny thing though is, that there isn’t really a clear definition.

The internet and social media are weird. Amazing, but weird. I constantly wonder why I feel the urge to write to people I don’t know? Why do I put myself under pressure to publish articles (believe it or not, I do have a schedule 😉), to research stuff and to make my spelling mistakes public? Well, there are a few reasons and for myself and to maybe inspire you, I will tell you!

I am not much for new years resolutions. And as it is already February one can hardly call anything decided now a new years resolution. Nevertheless, I have been thinking about my blog and what kind of direction it should take.

Last time I wrote about the Raspberry Pi. This time I wonder about the difference between a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino. They can both take input and give an output. So why should I favour one over the other?
Let’s find out!

Hello humans of the internet!
A while ago I got myself a Raspberry Pi. Longterm I would like to write more games and programs in Python and then put them on the Raspberry Pi to create something similar to the early game consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System. But first I have to get started with the little fruit tard…
