Hi @jorgon1022 @ChristianBertram ! Welcome! @mutantspore is right: we are trying to make this room as open as possible to all levels and experiences.
The main interest of the room is to ask people to come up with projects and create products, facing the usual challenges of data manipulation, preparation and presentation. Using JS is encouraged because this is part of the FCC program, but you can decide in which point of your project you will apply it. For example: I would like to develop my visualization skills with d3js.
@mutantspore has been more in the web dev than me; I have a more data analyst orientation, with more experience in the market research sector, but foundations in Data Science in general. The last 6 months I have been trying to combine that knowledge with some web development experience, mainly data manipulation and data visualization, as well as functional and event-driven programming.
@ChristianBertram @jorgon1022 we have data available, as @mutantspore mentioned. The data is about campers. There are some proposed questions to be answered using that data. I am also asking to include other variables, to make it more informative.
We have also a small group of (busy) people working on the layout of a hackaton, but focused on FCC curriculum for now.
Have to go but you are welcome to come up and check the data! There are people who have already contributed with something.
Ideas, interests, projects, etc... always welcome!
