People:
For those who don't know, @roelver is working on a data endpoint API for FreeCodeCamp. The project hasn't been officially announced (it will be next summit).

Keep on this channel to check the progress of this interesting project!

@evaristoc I thought that road was hella scary but on the flipside if you don't believe you need to master everything there all at once
to consider oneself a data scientist you can surprise yourself at how far on that road you are.

That's easily the most intimidating Data Science infographic I have ever seen.

It is but it's almost like a rise to the challenge sort of thing.
Like I personally want to learn 2 and 4
basic statistics and probability and how it's applied to do the various stuff like clustering

@Lightwaves There is no argument possible in favour, doctor... I decided to give up and become a nurse...


Hi People:
FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE SOCIAL NETWORK CHAPTER:
Getting enthusiastic about the possibilities we will be have working with social-related data, definitively. I am just calling this Chapter of the DataScience room after Erdös, an interesting, turned-drug-adict contemporary mathematician NOT known for his contributions to SNA and still been a reference for numerous SNA projects (look for the Erdös Number).

I think this project is interesting, have impact, it is challenging, it's fashion, and more importantly: it's cooooool!

So, a pair of useful material:
http://dmml.asu.edu/smm/book/ (the theory...)
http://miningthesocialweb.com/ (... and the practice)


@alicejiang1 contact you later today, to see if we can do something... enjoy!
