Back to the basics

As the first post of this year, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. 2014 was a year where I focused much more on reading papers, hence the lack of posts on this blog (for those interested in what I have been reading, you can check out my incomplete notes on my second wiki). In addition, I thought now would be a good time to share my 2014 Jetpack annual report for this blog:

annual_reportFor those who are really keen, here's the full report.

For the year 2015, I am aiming to strengthen my foundation in statistics. It's one of those things I've constantly told myself to improve on, but I never really took it seriously. I want to understand the subject well enough to be able to explain concepts (correctly and accurately) to others. I have been writing short posts using GitHub Pages, several of which are related to basic statistics. In the future, I will incorporate those minor posts into a larger post, that will be published on this blog.

Lastly, here are some books that I will finish reading before the year ends (I'm trying to will myself to finishing these books):

  1. Programming in C (3rd Edition)
  2. Data Smart: Using Data Science to Transform Information into Insight
  3. Practical Vim: Edit Text at the Speed of Thought (Pragmatic Programmers)
  4. Basic Physics: A Self-Teaching Guide
  5. R Graphics Cookbook: Practical Recipes for Visualizing Data
  6. Biological Sequence Analysis: Probabilistic Models of Proteins and Nucleic Acids

Have a productive and fruitful 2015!
