About this site

Welcome to my personal web site. I'm gradually adding material to it, either as I develop it for other purposes (e.g. writing articles) or as answers to particular technical questions I'm asked. When I get time, I'm also adding content on the very basics of analytics and data mining for those who are new to the subject. As a result, you'll find a somewhat diverse mix of material here, though I'm trying to structure it in a simple but meaningful way. As usual, any feedback or requests for new content are welcome.

Best regards

Chris, 12 June 2014
