@jacobbogers no much... still trying to get a bit more into d3.js... and what have you read about multivariate analysis? Is there something interesting?

I would say it is essential for anyone doing statistical analysis

@jacobbogers No, I don't have front end cert... I am just trying to concentrate my efforts instead: I hope that by learning d3.js I will be able to learn other things around it... And @jacobbogers: would you like to apply some multivariate analysis on FCC survey data? Anything that you recommend that we should do?

@evaristoc , I need to finnish front end cert first, only 2 projects (working on tic tac toe and later simon) . Then I will re-evaluate next step.
I didnt look at anything "data sciency" yet
(with regards to FCC)
you could use non-parametric methods to analyse the data and wonder why it is the way it is

@jacobbogers @evaristoc going along with non-parametric method, it might be interesting to explore clustering of the data to see if there are different kinds of new coders. k-means doesn't work for categories but maybe try k-modes, as suggested here (I haven't read into k-modes but the response here sounds like it might be suitable for the survey data) http://datascience.stackexchange.com/a/24
