Fantasy Football Auction Draft Analysis

Me and my coworkers recently had the draft for our fantasy football league.  Although I’ve done many fantasy leagues in the past, this was my first time doing an auction draft.  I left the draft room feeling pretty good about my team (the B-Sze Bees), but also excited about the possibilities for analysis.  Given the finite bank roll of each player, the auction draft leaves a lot more room for someone to have a horrible (or amazing) draft, depending on how they allocate their resources.

Although its hard to decide who had a good or bad draft before the season is over, I did think it was worthwhile to look at the draft results and use them to determine what our league valued, based on spending habits.

Beat Repeat & Open Turntables – August 23rd, 2012

Come Work at TrialPay!

This past Wednesday to Friday, we had our quarterly hackathon at TrialPay.  The hackathon gives engineers and other interested parties a chance to work on some fun projects that aren’t what is normally considered high urgency (e.g., data visualization or in-office announcements) in a short amount of time. 

The hackathon this quarter was hiring theme (i.e., projects that would be useful when trying to recruit new hires).  I used the hackathon as an excuse to write a hiring tune for TrialPay, “Come Work at TrialPay!”  In the future, it would be really fun to make a higher quality recording of the song, and film an accompanying video.  In the meantime, here’s a rough (both in terms of equipment and performance quality) recording 1.
