I'm Johny D K, a software engineer, data scientist and dreamer.
I'm a data scientist from East Europe. This is my place on the web for data science projects, tutorials and guides. I love facing data challenges and finding hidden insights and relations.
I've started as a database administrator long time ago. My first database was Oracle. I remember the hard times which I had with SQL. This period was for one year and something.
Next challenge was ETL, data mining and data migration. At that time I was sleeping with financial data literally. Still having problems with data manipulation, SQL, excel tables... but I realized that the right career for me is Data Scientist.
Luckily for me the hype for Data Science grow and I was able to move to the next level - Python, Pandas, R.. This was huge step ahead. Another big change at that time was Linux.
Initially I was doing a task for weeks, later the weeks become days and finally hours. And even now I'm fascinated how much I can learn every single day :)
The list of my hobbies is long so I'll keep to the most important ones.
The first and biggest one is nature. I like everything related to nature - walking, learning, breathing. Long walk in the forest is the most inspirational thing for me.
I like sports like swimming, running, fitness. They help me to relax after hard data challenges. The active days are the only rest for my brain.
I love reading science fiction, space, biotech, geography. This is my reward at the end of the day.
One of my first projects is fantasyan. Combination of my fantasies, AI writer and analysis of science fiction books. Recently I don't have much time to advance with this project.
Genome Project is another interesting project for me. I'm helping biologist in finding patterns in human DNA. Oh yeah, it's not easy.
One of my favourite quotes is from book Dune:
“Muad'Dib learned rapidly because his first training was in how to learn. And the first lesson of all was the basic trust that he could learn. It's shocking to find how many people do not believe they can learn, and how many more believe learning to be difficult. Muad'Dib knew that every experience carries its lesson.”
