blog/ Graphs and CV

02 Jun 2016

So, I thought it'd be fun to actually try and breakout my professional history into years for each technology. The idea being, excluding school and non-paid-non-professional time, how much have I spent working on each programming language or process over the years. It was an interesting exercise that left a pretty graph and provided a couple surprises for me.
  1. I found a bug in my resume timeline, that appears to have been in the copy of my resume sent out. So that is lame, but fixed.
  2. I found that I've been working in Python a lot longer than I had thought.
Something that isn't a surprise:
  1. The graph it produced is misleading and mostly worthless because although it captures raw years where I was working in a technology or technologies it may not be a good reflection of my career or experience. It is mostly correct, but I'm not sure I'd ever use it to drawn any conclusions, and I wouldn't want anyone else to, so I'm including here for posterity and otherwise likely removing it

Fun with graphs ;)

I thought it'd be fun to try and compute how many years I spent actively developing in each technology to breakout my career in a pie graph. It was a fun thing to do, but isn't terribly accurate.
It doesn't include the massive amount of C/Python/Perl/C++/Java and other programming I did while a student at UMBC from 2003 to 2013.
