Review of 2018 and goals for 2019

January 2, 2019


One of my major goals at the start of they year was to start a blog / website as a way to encourage me to work on things I personally find interesting, and have a place to share them. I suceeded in getting this site up and running in September, and have mainly used it to share visualisations produced for community projects like #MakeoverMonday and #TidyTuesday.

I was happy that I managed to post at least one thing each week, but I feel I didn’t spend as much time as I wanted on things I am really interested in. I got much more out of working on #TidyTuesday pieces than #MakeoverMonday so I will probably focus more on the former next year when I do decide to participate.

I was really pleased / surprised by the amount of likes and views I got on my post which tried to recreate one of Nathan Yau’s visualisations, and I learnt quite a lot from it so I’ll try to do more of these sorts of posts next year.

2019 Goals

I imagine a lot of these goals will change, and new things will come up that I decide are more important. For example, at the start of 2018 I thought I’d be spending a lot more time playing with Deep Learning techniques and Machine Learning competitions but realised I was currently more interested in the communication of data, which lead to a much greater focus on data visualisation.

But here are a number of things I plan to do over the next 12 months:
