My post on using Data Science Studio from Dataiku to build data pipelines was just published! DSS makes it super simple to create complex data pipelines. In this post I give an example of a basic pipeline to give you a flavor for it.

Received my 15 pound mace from +Onnit today, the latest in my Spartan training arsenal. Can't wait to add it to my routine.

Following the Black Hat Data Wrangling talk that Travis Hoppe and I did to kick off the 2016 year of Data Wranglers DC, the next four months is going to be awesome.
The next four months of Data Wranglers DC features artificial intelligence, data pipelines, processing streaming data and handling black swan events.

Life isn't something happening to you - it's something you control. The keys are humility, and taking 100% responsibility for your life.

When my daughter Palamee was younger she watched a cartoon with a character named Special Agent Oso. Oso would complete his missions using three simple steps. In a recent conversation I was asked to provide my definition of data science. Today I’m going to provide that definition in not three easy steps, but five, and show a real-world implementation.
Data science is a five-step process, not a single technique. This post describes each step and shows a real-world implementation.

In a previous post where I detailed my morning routine, I provided a kettlebell workout with a lot of kettlebell. In today's post I provide a program with only two kettlebell lifts and much more calisthenics.

Let's get moving!

For those wanting a break from high-volume workouts, try this simple and sinister kettlebell and calisthenics workout on for size.
