@GoldbergData It will be a bit before the project itself starts. I thought I had retained a lot of JavaScript knowledge, which is true, but so much has changed since I last used it, so I have to relearn the basics lol
I'll be happy to keep up to date on this, and I've even been given permission to write about the suicide study analysis I recently finished NLP work on. If anyone is interested, if/when I do that I'll share it here :)
