Thoughts and observations

Week 18, 2017

A day late and brief because I spent the weekend cycling!


In the past few weeks I’ve been working on creating an environment for reproducible data analysis with Docker, Jupyter and R. What I thought would be a simple project turned quickly became complicated when I had to work out how to upgrade Java and R’s Java bindings to connect to AWS Athena. I hope to write a longer post about this project soon.


Last week Jan Chipchase released The Field Study Handbook which you should definitely read more about and probably back. I’m looking forward to spending some quality time reading it once it ships, currently estimated for June 2017.
