Over my head into statistics; but I make progress. Also installed Julia. Joined with ISLR; in a few weeks I'll be ready to dive deeper into ML. So far so good :-)

@twonjee2002 the combination with computing is really an interesting and fun way to make dry numbers come to live. Boredom keeps lurking.

@/all Hey everyone, I just published an article on our 2017 New Coder Survey here: https://medium.freecodecamp.com/we-asked-20-000-people-who-they-are-and-how-theyre-learning-to-code-fff5d668969

I mention the Data Science room in the article, so we may have new people joining this room, so thanks in advance for making them feel welcome.

@erictleung is almost done cleaning the dataset. As soon as he does, I will upload it to Kaggle. And anyone who's interested can dive in and start finding insights and publishing findings :)

If you have any questions about the survey methodology or the dataset, you can ask right here in this chatroom.

@Anatoli11 last year was the first time freeCodeCamp did its own coder survey.

@robbawebba you can find the raw data here. The survey was broken up into two parts so I'm finishing up putting them together, along with some cleaning.
