One year ago, Buck Woody disappeared. He stopped blogging, took down his Twitter and Facebook accounts, and updated his LinkedIn profile to include the term “Department of Defense.” He still worked for Microsoft, but he was doing something…unspeakable. (Even more unspeakable than normal.)
Good news – he’s back, but in slightly different places:
And here’s why you should care:
- He’s now on Microsoft’s Advanced Analytics team (as pirates say, “ML, R”)
- He’s helping people use data to solve problems
- He doesn’t have a stats background (and neither do you, so he’s the perfect person to teach you – well, maybe “perfect” isn’t the term I’d use for Buck)
Follow him, and subscribe to his blog. I promise it’ll be a great journey even if you don’t follow in his footsteps.
