@evaristoc do you want code for data extracting from FB ? that is another repo but it is ugly code and outdated. I will post it tomorow after I refactor it.

@samosale I am guessing: it is possible that you are having problems to find the rest of the data because the naming? Facebook put some obstacles to keep certain standard name for all groups and the group leaders might be using a different naming that makes it difficult to automate...
Yes! Thanks for sharing the code for extracting the data too @samosale! Only avoid to share your token and other keys but some advise will be welcome @samosale

@evaristoc No, I already have Facebook links - exmp. https://www.facebook.com/groups/free.code.camp.belgrade/

That is from https://github.com/samosale/fccCities/blob/master/fccCitiesFinal753.json

So I setInterval on 20sec -
I split them just to extract free.code.camp.belgrade.

Scraping?
It is possible the naming...
I am sure we can do better: there is a Facebook api you can use... also using similar procedure but with libraries like request.js
or just the api...

No, here is the old code that is fetching FB API on 60 sec
But don't show anybody, it is ugly code and outdated.
I am using some FB aPi module
d3[0].features contains all information about groups including facebook url mention above

@luishendrix92: forgot to mention: don't know if you are still working with your "Solution Getter". You mentioned that you wanted to include some stats. If you are still interested in improving your previous work, let us know if you need help or at least getting some feedback?

People:

One of the most influencing projects that started as a external project but ended up to be part of FreeCodeCamp is the camperbot, by @dcsan, who has been working on bots for years.

There are several works in FCC that are forked projects from camperbot, but a recent initiative by @bugron (who is currenly a FCC Moderator) consists in a bot that will supervise the Push Request for changing FCC main code, mostly for changes in the curriculum content. The code will identify who is the Moderator that are those moderators that are more likely to take ownership for any change made by any other camper. Moderators have specific privileges and responsibilities related to Quality Assurance of any proposed change.

Keep an eye of this new feature if you are interested in contributing with FCC code base! Who knows: you may "steal" some ideas later for your own projects!! ;)

Other interesting things happening in FCC that are now made public through a recent medium article by @QuincyLarson:

  • An Academic Honesty auditing tool (a very simple but useful tool, to facilitate a peer reviewing of the campers work by the current Core Team staff)
  • GitHub Portfolio Export tool

There are other things FCC is working on: if you are interested to contribute just ask Quincy or BerekeleyTrue.

Finally (for now...) a pair of medium articles I just found interesting and wanted to share, not directly related to DataSci:
