Let's Build a Web-Based Book Recommender!

About this project:

One of the most popular uses of data science algorithms is in the recommender engine. Recommenders drive Amazon, Netflix, and any other e-tailer's ability to recommend a product based upon what you are looking at, or what you have purchased.

Data Mart Example and Reports in SSRS

About this project:

The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) is an open-source database of abundant data about global terror attacks, since 1970. Information collected includes: group; weapon used; and target. The database is hosted and supported by the Univeristy of Maryland.


I wanted to work with an interesting database to show the outcome of building a data mart. This database is a fine choice. Thus, I ingested the data from GTD into a Microsoft SQL Server, then developed data marts to calculate the total number of attacks by: year; by U.S. State; by group; and finally, by attack type. The results follow in live reports built in SSRS.





Where's the Pictures?

Visualization is at the heart of analysis, so what would a data scientist's portfolio be without some visualizations?


Luckily for me, I have a few visualizations to share as part of a showcase of the outcomes of analysis.
