@/all,
The FCC DataScience community is growing. I was thinking if it wouldn't be a good idea if we organise a small hackaton for locals and foreigners.
I don't have much experience with that and my current developer skills are still... well... developing... but I would like to hear some ideas and expertise we would like to share.
Mine since to be stronger in analytics. I have strong base in data mining and exercised some interesting projects in machine learning before. There is also a small project I did here applying text analytics.
Other topic? @AdventureBear commented me she wanted to know more about scraping using JS.
I would suggest if any of you could:

  • give his/her opinion
  • suggest a topic
  • indicate if wanting to be a possible facilitator
  • indicate if being able to be part of a hackaton organization commission

Hoping to hear from you all

THE DSR WEEKLY DIGEST:

DSR (DataScience Room) is an effort to gather campers of all levels and specializations willing to engage in discussion, collaboration and practice of data-related projects with focus on JS and FCC.

Hi EVERYONE!

Last Week...:
Several points:

  • @roelver found changes in the Gitter API that affected his app and likely any other project based on that
  • @johnlreavis, @P1xt, @jameswinegar, @carl-parrish were discussing some aspects we should consider when analysing FCC data
  • some people have come up with questions about Data Science training: some campers, eg @carl-parrish, @wwwfredom and @darwinrc, have been providing help

In the FCC News...:
Although not strictly related to JS, one repo that is currently under @vicky002's

... Next Week...:

  • No plans... hoping for answers about organising a hackaton for next year...

Wish List:

  • No this week

@evaristoc: I think a hackathon is an excellent idea although probably should be focused on webdev tools. Need some freedom to get things done quickly. Also if you're interested in some projects I'd love to work with you some.

G’day everyone, I found an awesome curated list of all the cool things about machine learning and deep learning tutorials on github. Check it out here at https://github.com/ujjwalkarn/Machine-Learning-Tutorials

Hi people,
this could be an interesting blog (JS and ML):
http://www.burakkanber.com/blog/machine-learning-in-other-languages-introduction/

About JS and ML: it is currently more for practising techniques

@jameswinegar: totally agree: I envision the hackaton as one that should contain elements about visualization and or back-end design... my prefered project would be to build a very simple but robust app... that could even have some python/C/etc as an additional featured language... we need to think further about it... I will keep getting inputs from you and everywhere...

@vicky002, @jameswinegar : thanks! I will surely contact you later and also others who want to do some analytics soon! There are few projects I have in mind that might interest you.
