Hi, I’m Zishi. I’m from Beijing, China. This blog is used to share useful learning notes for data analysis and real-world accounting analysis/automation projects. If you believe that one can turn one’s passion into reality, you are not alone.

My career

Currently, I’m working as an accountant in a fast-growing American SaaS company - AvePoint (2-year working experience). AvePoint is a Microsoft Global ISV Partner and has been named to the Inc. 500/5000 six times and the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ five times. Not like traditional accountants, I write python and VBA codes and develop programs and tools to automate our accounting working process. I also develop BI reports and online/offline dashboard for accounting ERP systems. It makes me more like a data analyst.

My learning experience

I have a bachelor degree in Inter-culture Communication of English and a master degree in Professional Accounting. None of them are related to math, programming and data analysis but it does not stop me from learning them. After I graduated, I learned Python, SQL and VBA and am able to use them in work. I also got a certificate of Data Analytics Foundations for Accountancy II in coursera which means I am ready to use machine learning techniques to do some real-world projects.
