Today, just a short notification concerning the use of analytics on this blog: I have decided to get rid of the Google Analytic Tag on these pages. It was very joyful to know how many people surfed to my little blog from all over the world, yet it doesn't outweigh my reservation against Google obtaining entry into almost each and every single piece of software surrounding us. Asides from on-site analytic tags I have recently decided to circumvent Google and its services as well as possible in my personal digital footprint as well.
Hello world! My name is Sebastian Schweer, and I am a Data Scientist. This job description is increasingly popular, but it is notoriously difficult to describe precisely, what that entails. Let me show you one of my favourite definitions: Source. My job requires me to spend a lot of time each day writing code in varying languages, mostly R but also Python and SAS. This inevitably leads me to spend a lot of time thinking about both code as well as the process of programming itself.
