from the kind folk at MicroAssist - A Slideshare presentation on LMS Basics.
From Guardian’s Data Blog:
We are drowning in information. The web has given us access to data we would never have found before, from specialist datasets to macroeconomic minutiae. But, look for the simplest fact or statistic and Google will present a million contradictory ones. Where’s the best place to start?
That’s how this blog came about. Everyday we work with datasets from around the world. We have had to check this data and make sure it’s the best we can get, from the most credible sources. But then it lives for the moment of the paper’s publication and afterward disappears into a hard drive, rarely to emerge again before updating a year later.
Kunal Jain on Single habit that defined the trajectory of my career
What is the single most important habit that shaped up my career? This is the habit which propelled me from from being just an ordinary analyst to some one who can influence, manage and mentor people in Analytics industry.
Here is the habit:
Spend a defined fraction of your day working on the the most important project / problem you have.
Please note the importance of two words here: defined and most important. You need to fix what fraction of your time you would spend and what is the most important task for you.
I discovered Kunal through an article on KDNuggets. Found his Twitter account and followed him and from there to his LinkedIn account to this article. It is nice to see people sharing so much of their knowledge through Tweets and blog posts.
A couple of other useful links if you are interested in Analytics from Kunal
Thanks Kunal. We need more people like you.
