I'm Abhijit Annaldas, a Software Engineer with over 6 years of extensive experience in building enterprise scale applications spanning a wide variety of domains and underlying technology stack, including Microsoft and open source technologies. I started getting familiar with Machine Learning in early 2016(?) which soon turned into my labor of love. I spent significant part of my free time (beyond day job) learning Machine Learning for about 2 years(?). Since the academics/subjects I have been through didn't give me enough exposure to mathematics, grasping machine learning was initially tough for me. Believe me, getting started wasn't easy. I had a zillion questions as to where to begin, what all the basics are required. The depth and vastness of the subject is mind-boggling. And for one like me without enough mathematics exposure initially, it was difficult to find the starting point. Before I started this journey, I hated mathematics and now I love it. I have learned more mathematics since early 2016 than what I had learned in my formal education. In this blog, I intend to share my learnings and experiences.
If you think I can be of any help or if you have any questions/thoughts, please do not hesitate to drop me a note at avannaldas at hotmail dot com. I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a hello! Amazing things happen when like minds come together.
I started writing about programming and technology in 2010 on my other blog. It contains posts on a broad range of topics. I stopped writing there and started two new blogs. This one, dedicated to Data Science and http://abhijitannaldas.com/learner where I occasionally write about my life experiences and random topics.
I usually re-post my articles on my LinkedIn account to reach wider audience. And, few of my articles are re-posted on some of the greatest blogs. I'd like to thank respective editors/authors of those blogs for providing me an opportunity to reach much larger audience. Articles re-posted so far are...
