My thoughts, written down.

Spring 2012 Semester Complete – GPA 4.0!

Posted by signal on May 25th, 2012

The Spring 2012 semester is finally all wrapped up. I got my grades back today and I received an A in CSCIe-131b, my first class toward my ALM.  I am very excited about this.  Now I look ahead to Building Dynamic Websites with Professor Malan, and I am looking forward to a challenging and rewarding class.

I continue to struggle with the desire to focus more on Bioinformatics.  Having just come back from the Data Science Summit 2012, I am very excited about what the future holds with analytics and Big Data.  I will have to be content with working in my primary discipline and having to increase my knowledge more slowly over time in other areas such as Life Science.  I have run the plan over and over in my head on how I could tackle a degree in Biotechnology / Bioinformatics, but it just doesn’t make sense for me right now.  My journey naturally leads me toward Computer Science / Information Technology.  I need to complete that and stay focused.  So that is the plan.  That said, nothing stops me from becoming more involved and relevant to a Data Science community and I am looking forward to any opportunities that present itself, particularly a project or area of research in academia that I could assist in.
