Hello! I'm Victoria
I'm currently helping to expand and educate the community around spaCy and other developer tools with Explosion. I'm kind of obsessed with natural language processing and working on cool projects that challenge my understanding of the world. Welcome to my learnings and doings!
How I got my job
In the span of less than a year, I went from knowing almost nothing about natural language processing and machine learning to having a job at one of the coolest ML/NLP companies out there. I’m going to take a bit of time in this blog post to reflect on some of the things I did and mindsets I had that I think led me to where I am today.
I just somewhat finished the beta of a project (synsong) to practice NLP, Python, and API skills. Right now, you can input genre, popularity, and a natural language prompt (such as a sentence, quote, or paragraph), and it will create a playlist based on matches with the lyrics, song title, and artist name with the prompt.
Slack to Notion translator
Notion has a very interesting way of setting up their pages, formatting their text, and creating items, and that happens to be very different than Slack's approach. By taking examples of text from both APIs, I was able to set up a translator between Slack and Notion. This blog post walks you through how I did it!
