Intro

My name is Alan Hylands.
I am a data analyst and writer from Northern Ireland.



Currently, I’m a senior decision scientist at Zapier.


I also interview data analysts at Analysts Assemble.
And I help them get started learning SQL with my online SQL Crash Course.



This is my personal site where I write on a variety of topics including data, business, personal finance, tech, careers, writing and my quest to build a simple kind of life.

Some of it is in complete articles, some will be more in note form as I try to cultivate a digital garden of my thoughts.
