New code up on Github

Mon 20 January 2014

... and we're back!

After an extended absence due to "real-life" responsibilities and an extended illness, I'm back. Unfortunately, the NFL season is winding to a close, but what better time to talk about football than the off-season?

In anticipation of this, I've pushed a bunch of code to the site's Github page. There you'll find code to setup a Postgres database with the Armchair Analysis play-by-play data, all of the data-munging taken care of for you, and lots of other assorted goodies. I've uploaded a simple IPython notebook showing how to use the data to build a random forest as well. More on the way soon, I promise.

You can find it all on Github.
