2017 Year-end summary

Posted by Qing on February 24, 2018

作为一个SAS程序员,对我来说,2017是挣扎的一年。我依靠SAS来生活,但是像我这样的SAS程序员很酷吗?这不是一个愚蠢的问题。

回顾

2017,我所有的时间精力都花在准备研究生考试、学习数据科学、计算机科学上。

数据科学:

计算机科学:

  • 学习Python,包括一般的Python和面向对象编程,并尝试用python写一些小的工具
  • 学习C语言,主要是通过阅读经典书籍The C Programming Language(其实是为了应付研究生考试)
  • 也学习了一些数据结构和算法,看了算法第四版,现在正在刷ECNU

我为什么选择Python?而不是R或者其他语言?不仅因为Python是数据科学里面最流行的计算机语言,更因为其自由创新的开源精神。

工作:

其他:

等我入学我会尝试总结一篇我的非全日制研究生旅程

下一步是什么

  • 转行面试(数据方向)
  • 攻读非全日制研究生
  • 学习机器学习以及数据挖掘理论

2017 was a year of struggle for me as a SAS Programmer. I earn my bread mostly by using SAS, but is a SAS Programmer like me cool? That’s not a stupid question.

Looking back

In 2017, all my time and energy is spent preparing the graduate exams, studying computer science. As for working? There’s no energy left to think about, but would I regret it??

in the following aspect, I

Data Science:

  • Learn how to use data science packages on Python, including: Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib
  • Some Advanced Mathematics
  • Some Linear Algebra
  • [Probability and Mathematical Statistics] (https://book.douban.com/subject/2285151/)

Computer Science:

  • Leaned some Python, including general Python and OOP programming, made small tools in python
  • Leaned some C, mostly by the reading the excellent The C Programming Language
  • Also learned some data structures and algorithms by reading the 4th edition of the algorithm, and is burying my head in [ECNU] (http://acm.ecnu.edu.cn/problem/)

Working:

Others:

  • Take the National Graduate Examination to pursuit a master degree, target schoold is [East China Normal University] (http://www.ecnu.edu.cn/) (Update: Pass the passing line and waiting for retest)
  • Build my Github portfolio
  • Build my personal blog Will try to summarize my part-time graduate journey afer I enroll school successfully

What’s next

  • Job interview (data science)
  • Studying Part-time graduate students
  • Learn machine learning and data mining theory
