I am a trained electonic technician and graduate engineer in Data Analysis and Process Design (back in 2001, the term «Data Science» was not yet fully established). The programming language R has been a faithful companion for data exploration, analysis, modelling and visualisation throughout my career.
I am an advocate of project-based collaboration in multidisciplinary teams and support any method of agile project management, provided that
- the team members' roles and responsibilities are clearly defined.
- the products' vision is identified and a product roadmap created.
For integrating standard IT applications into an existing technical and oranisational framework as well as building on existing IT infrastructure I stick to HERMES 5 – an open standard developed by the federal administration of Switzerland.
I use of GitLab for all my projects. Goal: A single application for project planning, source code management, issue tracking, CI/CD, etc. This page as well as www.b-data.io have been published with GitLab Pages directly from a repository in GitLab.
I try to devote about 20% of my resources to collaborations with start-ups. If you think I would be a good fit for your team, contact me by e-mail or call me on Skype. I always take the time to look into your project to discuss the possibilities of a cooperation.
