@TedLasso Chronicles, #4… because I don’t really know what to call these things I write…

On Beard

Prologue: about the Beard episode- I have no idea. This isn’t about Beard After Hours. Apologies, I still don’t fully get that one *dodges flying objects thrown by Beard stans*
Also: I don’t know some of what I’m writing here- I’m no psychologist. These are my hunches.

Ted Lasso, tho, isn’t about father/son relationships as lots say, it’s a loving portrayal of the intense subject of trauma told in a brilliantly funny and relatable way.

Each tactical approach has pros and cons when you determine to apply it, a lot of people praised Guardiola's ideas in the build-up phase, especially with the 2-3-5 shape.

Tactical behavior in #Football has a spatial and a temporal component, and results from interaction with the opponent. It’s key to account for all these aspects in data-driven tactical analysis, as well as to respect the complexity of the temporal and spatial dimensions 🧵
Two years ago I published a systematic review in @EurJSportSci on using big data in #soccer for tactical performance analysis that illustrates the associated challenges and provides a data-driven scientific framework. #DataScience
The most common analysis issue is the fact that spatial and/or temporal complexity is not respected. For example by aggregating data over multiple minutes, or constructing spatial features aggregating 11 player positions into a single variable.

Preparing for a technical interview for a #DataScience position? These are some of the questions that typically allow me as an interviewer to quickly distinguish between juniors and mediors, including some quick tips 🧵. #Python #pythonprogramming #DataScientist #Jobs
All questions about SQL. Not the hardest thing to learn, but many #DataScientists only start to learn the value of SQL when they actually become part of a dev team. I’m not only talking about SELECT * FROM table, but also about joins, truncates, partitions and constraints.
Interacting with an API. Make sure you know your requests (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH), as well as the #Python requests library.
