People

Those interested in API construction for data analysis, using d3.js


I think I have been collecting enough about the basic weapons we could use to prepare a certain kind of "curriculum for building Data-Driven API's" for this room. Basically MEAN (with angular2, sorry reacters...) with emphasis on sockets and possible Rx, Flask as alternative, SQL, good jQuery libraries for controllers, a course I found in Numeric Analysis, R, python and d3.js... For now, not Big Data although I am now talking with people of a project called Thunder (python) to see how it goes...


@Evaderei ! :) Sorry to hear that you broke your phone! I hope it was for a good reason.... :) I hope you recovered and wish you luck for the next time!

@evaristoc What kind of API are you thinking of?
building
What would be the input / output?

@emilaasa:
We should find those exercises and then make a sort of DSR challenges. I am thinking about collecting data for other free courses in numeric analysis. We have also experience here with some aspects related to Social Network Analysis. Then I also reading this book:

The main example goes over geo-info.

I think the idea would be to select at least one example, and we will revise together our progress and give inputs between us.

The idea would be to have standard exercises that could have practical applications.

If we can find three canonical examples, in 3 different areas, that would be great... You just have to select one that you like the best... the room could be used to talk about the projects and specially about best practices...

(@emilaasa this is just an idea...)

@evaristoc thanks a lot for your recommendations. Sorry for my late response, since I have been in holidays. I've already finished Andrew Ng's course and totally recommend it, all topics are very thoroughly covered and the exercises are really good to grasp the concepts (and specially being in a such high level language as Octave). Curiously I found an old book (from the 80s) in the library of my University which talks deeply about SVMs and V. Vapnik and Chervonenkis models. Being a beginner in ML I found it pretty outdated and difficult to follow (it was very mathematical oriented). Blame my ignorance for not appreciating those pioneers, hahaha.

Hopefully not too off topic, but considering this is using Google's Tensorflow designed for machine learning, I think its appropriate :laughing: http://joelgrus.com/2016/05/23/fizz-buzz-in-tensorflow/
