Mario Talavera, previously an Analytics Developer at InQuira, recently became a Business Intelligence Developer at Oracle. He’s been evolving as a developer since graduating college from University of Central Florida in 1999.
Always working close to data, he has spent the last decade hacking away combining software development and analytics. He has most enjoyed himself using analytics to leverage software for real estate at ERA Europe, banking at Foreign Currency Exchange and CDNs at Highwinds.
For fun, he ponders free datasets for insight and interesting correlations. He is currently trying to crack crime. In the past, he has written about recommendation systems and agreed that five star rating are flawed.
