The week started with SQL, and all was great in the world. Disclosure: I did SQL professionally, so I tried to excel at excellence. Joins, queries, data structure. Most of the work was data input and planning the structure out. I made a database that had lots of many to many relationships about music with:
- Instruments in song
Honestly, I had great fun with the whole process, even the absurdity of mapping out the structure in which almost all data points had many to many relationships.
Also fun? But in a more frustrating sense? I like being frustrated? Eh, I learned to not take computer errors personally anymore. It’s not Python, I’ll tell you that.
I also shoved too much on my plate.
This weekend I’m attending the City of Houston Hackathon: http://houstonhackathon.com/info/
I’m probably joining this team: https://github.com/sketch-city/project-ideas/issues/87
I’m geocoding 40,000 restaurants in the Houston area as we speak (write?).
I’m also conceptualizing my portfolio site. I’m thinking data-driven dashboard front and center, as that’s my main strength and interest. Who wants to know how lucky their baseball team is? There’s a dashboard coming soon to answer that question!
I’m also boning up on Django some more, as well as Regular Expressions and Analytics.
I, uh, also got a 100 on a quiz? Yay? Yay!
