Holidays are over and it is time for a new project! Last year around this time (I think) I tried to code a game in Python from scratch. This year – coincidentally around the same time – I try to create an app for my mobile phone. Once again I will write a little coding diary about all the little troubles and stepping stones along the way and all the sweet sweet moments of success.

In order to grow, we need to rest 🙂 I will take a summer break from blogging and will be back on August 11th. I hope you get a summer break as well and can rest a little, so we can start again with all the fun learning and coding in autumn!
Have a lovely and sunny summer!
It is June already! In this blogpost, I do not have a very tech-related topic. This week I came across a personality test which I just found amazing to take. Naturally I want to share this with you 🙂

it is me again 😀 Recently I kind of “discovered” SQL. It came as quite a shock to me that I had never ever read about how important SQL is for an aspiring Data Scientist. So in this blog, I am going to raise some serious awareness for my new bestie SQL and also show you how to get started with this query language.

Lately, I have been writing a lot about Data Science and Data Scientists. So maybe you have been thinking of getting into Data Science yourself and trying to get a job in this field. There are some schools here in Switzerland which offer training… in this blogpost, I am going to present to you the ones I know of.

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!

For a school project, I am exploring the means of how to extract text from PDF with Python. I find text very fascinating and have been working a little with it lately. This blog post will show you how you can read PDFs with Python in a really easy way.
