Is anyone or has anyone completed the D3 projects on FCC? I'm really stuck on the bar chart. I have the chart and I can get it on a canvas but the chart doesn't resize to fit the canvas. If anyone has a tutorial (or five) to recommend, I'd be appreciative. Thanks!

@mbabaian there are people, yes. If no-one shows off right now you can also ask in the forum too. Try stackoverflow? Hint: declare width and height as variables and use those variables to build the graph. There is then a couple of ways to re-fit width and height according to screen size. If width and height are defined and used as variables and re-fit when required, the whole figure will be affected accordingly.

@jayvora92 it sounds like a bit of regex to me... if DS, looks more how to manage large amount of data; the analyses seems to be very simple ones. Are you needing some big data architecture/platform? Hadoop? Spark?
Again, not sure if I could help you much but I think you could start by finding the right regex? Then define the most appropriate code to get those results, based on the platform you are using. There is a few of us who have been doing Spark recently.

@evaristoc Thanks for the response. I have tried stackoverflow, and although I'm a native English speaker and the forums are written in English, my brain can't process what's being said. I need the SO for five year olds, I think. 😄 I'm just gonna go back and start over (again) and see what tips I can find about refitting bar charts.

I was asked if I would be willing to teach visualization and D3 courses everytime I'm in town when visiting my family, but I can't even think about how to answer that question hahaha! I guess I need to re-learn D3 ... Again...

People,
Currently taking a Data Mining coursera specialization. Pattern Discovery is one of the topics. Just letting a link about the current status of the methods for pattern discovery applied to Web Mining and what are the more promising in the future.
http://www.ijcte.org/vol8/1017-TD024.pdf

I still don't leave from my surprise that many of the popular methods are almost conventional ones. Hard to beat, I guess.

And!!!
While reading, I found a mentioning to applications in a sector I am currently interested:

Enhance e-learning environment

@apottr Nice! I won't invite you to take the Pattern Discovery course I am taking as it seems too elemental and quick. Even if the person who is offering it is the researcher behind one well known methodology (FP-Growth). I won't say the same about the Cluster, Information Retrieval and Text Mining courses in the same specialization. Basic but very good ones!
@apottr Great link!! Thanks!

@apottr 00! Goood... I knew you were into something...

People,
Again, while looking good references about pattern discovery I came along this people who claim they worked an AI or ML algo over the web to identify and rank the best books about Data Mining (at 2016). Have a look?

NOTE: I am doing something... similar?... no really, but a similar intention for the preparation of several medium articles for FCC. Here the first one:
