Eine kleine Nachtgitcommit
By day, I am Vinh, a dizzily-busy, multitaskingly-distracted, unreasonably thinly-stretched full-time MBA student at Chicago Booth and daddy of a toddling little boss.
Come the quiet of the night, and my nocturnal self
mbaLearnsToCode turns on, furiously committing snippets of computer programming code to my treasure troves of precious digital nothings on GitHub, BitBucket and the Python Package Index (PyPI).
I assure you, though, when I'm not committing to GitHub, I do commit a lot to my loved ones, bringing 'em to check out such greate places as this:
Why and What Do I Code?
I code so that I can:
be an active and knowledgeable citizen in the inevitable new world of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, and
build little life-quality-enhancing apps to help my wife, myself – plus, ahem, friends who are good to us – be less busy doing mind-numbing things such as clearing emails, managing calendars or tracking receipts.
My Coding Repertoire includes:
- Python / Django
- Matlab / Octave
- Ruby / Rails
- SQL, and
- a bunch of cloud-computing stuff such as EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, Elastic MapReduce, RDS, Route 53 and S3 by Amazon Web Services (my monthly bills help Jeff B. always smile confidently to financial analysts).
What's Cool Here?
My Blogs, documenting my exhilaratingly high and strugglingly, frustratingly low moments as a coder in the (non-existent) free time of an MBA-cum-family-guy
My Learning Resources to help you if you are starting, or co-travelling, the same MBA-coder path as I am; these include:
My Tool Room, where I painstakingly catalog useful magic-weapon-like programming packages that coders like you and I can steal for free and summon in our hours of utmost urgent need, when we are having our backs against the wall (or banging our heads against one in frustration)
Enjoy your time on my site!
