As a relatively new firm doing “magical things” with computers and math (as one client put it), we wanted to highlight some of the tools we use on a daily basis. We like to think of ourselves as analytical MacGuyvers, producing models from a gerbil powered calculator or targeted TV buys using an old copy of TV Guide and a TV remote, with only one battery. But the truth is that each team member has a different technology setup, often utilizing cutting-edge technology and software unique to how they process and output specific deliverables.
From time to time we’ll be posting closer looks at what the members of of our analytics and digital analysis departments use on a daily basis. Be sure to stop by often to connect and learn more about the team.
This week we are highlighting our talented Junior Analyst, Minh Mai.
I currently run two 27″ monitors (ASUS) off of my Mythologic 15′ laptop with a Core i7, 32GB of RAM and 2x1TB SSD. In addition, I’ve connected a Logitech M510 Wireless Mouse and a Logitech G105 keyboard. This setup helps me to run multiple programs on my monitors, while maintaining a constant eye on email and personal websites via my laptop. Oh, and I also couldn’t live without my AIAIAI TMA-1 headphones!
Definitely RStudio. As much as I’m trying to get into Python, I will always have a soft spot for R.
I would like to upgrade my current Aiaiai TMA-1 to the Aiaiai TMA-2 (my custom configuration: S03-H03-E04-C06). Other than that, there’s not much; my specs are pretty top of the line. Maybe I’ll ask for a standing desk.
Definitely F1 for my Yakuake terminal emulator. I changed the default key from F12 to F1 (since I’m left handed).
League of Legends and Clash of Clans are my guilty gaming pleasures, until the new Final Fantasy VII remake or Starcraft: Legacy of the Void comes out. Other than that, I’m on Instagram getting new ideas for tattoos or taking pictures of food or on Github building out my personal data science portfolio (currently, pretty sparse).
