I've been poking around the Modern Analyst forums, and I like what I'm seeing.  I decided to join up, and I hope to contribute to the community from what limited expertise I have, as well as glean knowledge from the rest of you.

Professionally, I'm a data analyst/researcher, specifically of the customer insights variety.  I work for a very large technology company with a huge online presence.  (Like, if you were to name 5 - 10 companies off the top of your head, you'd probably name mine.)  As far as skillset goes, I'd say I have a moderate-to-advanced level of knowledge in Teradata databases, SQL in general, Excel, and Tableau.  I've recently started playing around with R, Hadoop (and therefore Pig), and Java.

On a personal note, I'm married to the love of my life, and we have 50% custody of our combined Brady Bunch-esque slew of 5 impossibly blonde children.  In my spare time (ha!) I really, really love to read.  Like...really.  Bibliophile extraordinaire.  I'm also really into number and logic puzzles (like Rubik's Cube).  Additionally, I've occasionally been known to become hopelessly obsessed with a video game here and there (Borderlands, anyone?)  Oh, and I'm basically the undefeated Scrabble champion, except on the rare occasions that my husband beats me...then he's sleeping on the couch.  (I kid.  Mostly.)

Look forward to getting to know you and learning from you all.

There are big differences between data exploration versus data presentation. And you need to be aware of these differences as you're creating data stories and data presentations. Let’s start by defining our terms: Data exploration means the deep-dive analysis of data in search of new insights.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...
