# Google PageSpeed
Description:
My goal is to show you how R can be used in the field of digital marketing.
One of important tasks in digital marketing is ensuring that a website is loading in an efficient and secure way to keep the users/customers happy. Google PageSpeed Insights is one of the most important tools that can be used to create a "healthcheck" for a given URL address but using it for every single page in a website with thousands of pages will be tedious and error-prone.
Thus I created R package pagespeedParseR that helps with automatization. It can send multiple requests to Google PageSpeed Insights API and parse the returned reports (nested lists) into data frames.

Bio:
Leszek Siemiński is a digital marketing analyst, self-taught programmer & R language enthusiast. Currently, he works in Performance Media Polska as a Digital Data Analyst.

# Automated Supply Chain Management
Bio:
Father of 3, after first life in IT (mainly C++ dev and project management), switched to operations in Renault Nissan then Lean & Supply Chain Management at European level for Hutchinson ( Automotive). Lecturer at Politechnika Łódzka in Supply chain & Production management. Machine Learning practitionner for 3 years and now founder at ArtInLean.
The dream I am realizing is to build a platform that will erase all those stupid wastes in supply chain, specially for perishable food, securing my family needs while trying to leave this world not so spoiled to them.

Description:
I would like to share the journey I took to build from scratch a production grade machine learning workflow for automated stock and sales management, with emphasis on :

1/ Hurdles in accessing/cleaning data at a commercial company and how I could overcome them
2. How suprisingly fast it was for me to go from idea to working model in R
3. How painful and key it is to make it production grade ( and one can in R too)
4. Exchange with you on some principles I applied in my journey that helped a lot ( Lean start-up, Agile, continuous training, real passion for what I do...)
5. The challenges still to come ( keep values while growing, reinforcement learning?, database engineering,...)

Hopefully some of you will like to join the boat or share your experience!
