@alicejiang1 thanks! I will contact you DM today
@HomerDeoDatu Welcome! Yes: we work with python and js here, but R and other tools are also welcome.
The objective of this room is exploring topics in DataScience/DataAnalytics by including and learning some JS tools. To have a excuse we are focusing on FCC data but is not exclusive: we can use whatever data we want to show here. Quincy just suggested that stackoverflow is making its data open this year, for example. All data you want, as long as we contribute a bit with experiencing some work in JS stack, alone or combined with other tools.

Hi @/People

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.

Previous Digest

Tentative DSR site: http://evaristoc.github.io/FreeCodeCamp_DSR/

Everyone recommended...: "Data Science from Scratch" book by Grus


Last Week:

  • @ChristianBertram's Danish programming competition, http://www.datalogi-ol.dk/User/Login
  • me working on a real time viz for a network graph of interactions in the FCC gitter main room
  • @Mius00 presenting nice links about students' Data Mining projects
  • me about a recent visit to a meetup about Data Science, Digital Analytics
  • @koustuvsinha's suggestion about A. Karpathy course in neural networks
  • @Lightwaves about costs of GPU in AWS
  • @QuincyLarson about Stack Overflow and Open Data plans
  • me about a Big Research Question for the DSR
  • Other:
    • trends: link about the impact of NLP in future web design

In the WWW...:

First:

I am exploring the making of a DSR webpage: http://evaristoc.github.io/FreeCodeCamp_DSR/

If proves successful and not too cumbersome, we could include special sections, a database and search engines, etc... perhaps moving into a CMS... Not because we are a big group at the moment, but it just make everything tidier... The page will be updated when required and available at every Digest.

Additionally, a couple of medium articles that I found interesting readings. One by a FCC camper and coding from meteorologist perspective. The other one, about a not-that-futurist perspective of the impact of AI after the Go game Challenge.


Ok, People: Stay in touch!

WAIT! I think I know what's happening... stand by
That was in the wrong room HAHAHA

LOL I know what's happening..
Wait the room is empty :cry:

Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! @alicejiang1 I just saw you in the main room! hahahaha!!! I am doing another project about a Network Graph over the chatroom and saw your discussion... He is somehow right when talking about scraping, the major reason is that actually code usually get broken because usual changes, but in this case for what we want is ok!

Hahahahahahahahahaha! @Lightwaves, don't cry... you look like waiting for someone under rain.... Poor guy: someone would come for you soon!

@evaristoc Do you have a count of how many campsites there are, by chance?
Lightwaves
@Lightwaves
Mar 21 2016 22:40
I definitely want to see your progress on the Network Graph Visualization I can't wait until you're done!
evaristoc
@evaristoc
Mar 21 2016 22:40
No and that is another reason why we are scraping... I also wanted to make a short report for the CoreTeam about that...
@Lightwaves I did something, it is ok! But there is that little small thing that is not working as it should... I was try to correct that today but I am going to leave it for now and work on the code comparison project...
@Lightwaves it is really hard to understand and debug... also the fact that it is functional programming and D3js... problematic... I will need to ask the Gods to solve it: ie, I will finish it and post the problem in stackoverflow to wait for someone to see it...
Alice Jiang
@becausealice2
Mar 21 2016 22:44
@evaristoc So it's safe to assume the count of scraped values is accurate?
evaristoc
@evaristoc
Mar 21 2016 22:44
@alicejiang1 In principle I would say yes
@Lightwaves the problem I am trying to solve seems to be a non-typical one... interesting...
@alicejiang1 ^^^ Again: in principle I would say yes (not sure if you saw my answer above...)
Alice Jiang
@becausealice2
Mar 21 2016 22:51
Well, if anyone's curious, my current data shows 1229 campsites :)
evaristoc
@evaristoc
Mar 21 2016 22:53
wow....
Sounds good!

@becausealice2
Mar 21 2016 22:54
Just kidding, there's more. I need to do more fixing :laughing:

Mar 21 2016 22:55

Look: I check the page with Ctrl-U, so I saw the raw html...

You are right... and the reason there are no classes is because it is the wiki (it is written in plain markdown and converted into html)

There is a pattern in the data though...

Ok: sounds better!

I didn't account for regions/provinces/states :/
Soon....
