Hey all, I’m Aaron. I’m a software developer working primarily in C# and TypeScript, but I love to dabble in Python at work (doing some data analysis/viz) and in my spare time.
What sports and games do you follow? Hockey, hockey, and more hockey. And the Blue Jays.
What are you looking to learn or make? I’m not entirely sure yet. I’ve started (and stopped and re-started) writing an NHL data extraction tool in Python, mostly to help me learn asyncio and some Python 3 goodies, but hoping to make some sort of fun website with the data soon. I also love visualization, so something around that maybe?
Do you have a blog or twitter with previous work? I’m fairly active on the Twitters at @aaront, where you can often find me venting about the Senators’ internal budget, arena attendance, and putting Ceci-Phaneuf as a pairing with @BradT and the rest of #SensTwitter. I also post code on my github.
What are you looking to get out of this site? I love seeing what others are doing in data. As well, it seems to be a nicely tight-knit community. Also, I love to learn about data analysis in other sports, but it’s hard to break out of my hockey bubble on Twitter (for instance, today I learned that there was such a thing as volleyball analytics)
