A DATA SCIENTIST CODES AND ANALYZES DATA FOR FUN…IT’S TRUE

ALFONSO BERUMEN’S RESUME MADE ENTIRELY IN R (PDF DOWNLOAD)

I’ve been in enough situations where a business contact or student of mine would ask, “What’s your GitHub?” Further, I’ve been on the couch with a game on in the background finding myself going down a rabbit hole on some random data set I’ve found online to apply a new R software package or tool. Putting it together, the time is now to start a GitHub profile and share some hobby projects.

VISUALRESUME

I stumbled on the VisualResume package as I was browsing the web for examples of Data Scientist resumes to update my own. I thought, why not just show my programming skills and create a resume at the same time? Thank you, Nathaniel Phillips!

GITHUB

My intuition on why a business contact would ask for my GitHub is that there has been an influx of Data Scientists or those who are learning a programming language such as R (and listing it on their resume). GitHub provides an “open to the public” glimpse of one’s abilities and expertise. To kill two birds with one stone, what could be a better first blog post and GitHub addition than a completely R-generated resume?

GitHub: Los-Angeles-Data-Analytics

SHINY

To add some functionality and flair, I created a Shiny app so that the PDF resume I produced using the VisualResume package could be downloaded directly.

THE FUTURE

Going forward, I’ll be adding to the LADA GitHub as I come across either useful R tools or topics of interest that can be explored with data. Enjoy!
