@evaristoc , count on me for your project. What exactly do you need?
May 16 2017 07:10
@evaristoc not yet started, been looking at the data for both 2016 and 2017 surveys. I am interested in a compartive / trends visualization sort of thing (though its just 2 data points per parameter, 2016 and 2017...still). For example the average age went up from 27 to 28, people learning to code to start business vs wanting to freelance switched places, codeacademy lost to stackoverflow and w3schools etc... I am currently trying to rush through the FCC beta challenges and get to the visualization/D3 track (I have a few gaps in my learning to address), will put out a proof-of-concept soon and update here.

If you are interested in Gitter data, I would suggest the following:

How do people "Jump" around?
We have access to raw data for Gitter chatrooms but although there has been some interest no-one has tried yet. Are you interested?

We can work together the topic if you need help. Please share so we can help you to refine your findings.

I will contact you for a quick analysis using the Survey Data about the status of the user at the time they got into FCC. We can add an additional distribution by country using a map. There are several tools we can use but I would be great if we compare the data with previous year. I think we can present the data using d3.js for simple interactive charts.
Can you help us with that part?

Great! Let me know if you need help. Because you are busy with the FCC program I advice to keep it simple, unless you think to build a portfolio mainly in topics related to data.

Nice! Please share your findings through this channel? We will be happy to hear about and help you to refine your findings!

Maybe some of you know this already, but I didn't know that Kaggle had their own wiki. I stumbled upon their page on data leakage and realized there was a larger collection of documents! I'm sure there are some other good gems in there.
@youlz welcome! It depends on what kind of data science you want to work on, because a data scientist is expected to do everything, when it's not practical. So I would figure out what you like about it and focus on those skills, and then round yourself out with the other topics you don't know as well. Also, I'd find an introductory course to data science as a good start.

Does anyone here have experience making floyd-cli work on Windows?
Their docs are all *Nix based and most of the commands don't work on my computer Q.Q
May 16 2017 16:24
it looks like it's just pip install?
Alice Jiang
May 16 2017 16:30
You would think that
but after running that the only floyd command that works is the help command
which is important, but also useless without the rest working as well
They suggest installing virtualenv, which I did and am dealing with a whole other set of issues with that, now...
May 16 2017 16:50
do you get an error when you try other commands?

three hours and thirty six tab of google searches later, I got it to work. and before you ask, yes that's all ;P
May 16 2017 18:05
You are... welcome?
@becausealice2 data manipulation and yes: the charts. Let's wait for @PunkDado? He already has experience with data crunching. I expect it won't be a big data management challenge : the data is mostly cleaned already. I am more interested in discussing with you all the information that we should present and how to present it.

No problem :)
