I do machine learning and data science using Python and its various data science and machine learning related libraries, including TensorFlow, Pandas, NumPy, SciPy, SciKitLearn, MatPlotLib, Seaborn, and StatsModels.
I learned data science for a professional development project (PDP) before I began
my Praxis apprenticeship, and I wrote weekly blogs over the course
of learning these skills. Here are the blog posts:
PDP 1 • PDP 2 • PDP 3 • PDP 4 • PDP 5
Unfortunately, before I could finish this project (which was supposed to be six weeks long), I moved across the country. I plan to pick this back up whenever I find the time.

As the capstone for my degree at CCAC, I took a 10-week intensive course in systems analysis and design. In this, I learned about and did a number of projects on the systems development life cycle, scope statements, data flow diagrams, E-R diagrams, Gantt charts, relational database design, and installation types.
