/@all Hey everyone, quick update on the 2016 New Coders Survey.
@sarony just showed me the website she's built to host our visualizations, and it looks beautiful.
We would like to converge on a few key visualizations that we're going to use to illustrate the various relationships in the dataset.
The map library that @krisgesling used on her visualization looks great - to the extent possible, other map-related info should use the same geo she used for consistency. It would probably be best to fork her Pen and and work from there.
For all the bar charts displayed here (https://medium.freecodecamp.com/we-asked-15-000-people-who-they-are-and-how-theyre-learning-to-code-4104e29b2781#.tvuzyblkg) we will want to create our own D3 versions so we can scale and color them appropriately. Saron and I were thinking for the true/false type questions, we could show a single bar with different colors for yes and no. Would anyone like to design one or find a good one we can use for these? For reference, here's what they look like currently (they're static images):
@erictleung is still working to clean and combine all the data. In the meantime, most of the basic demographic questions are answered in full on part two of the survey (https://github.com/FreeCodeCamp/2016-new-coder-survey/blob/master/data/2016%20New%20Coders%20Part%202.csv) if you want to focus on building visualizations around that.
Thank you for all your hard work on this. This will most likely be noteworthy (Tech crunch wrote an article teasing this website that we're building around the results) so it should be good professional exposure for all involved, and great practice with manipulating and visualizing data.
If anyone has questions, you can always contact me or @evaristoc directly, but I urge you to ask here so all can benefit from your question. Happy data time!
:warning: could not find receiver for sarony
The control page is in the repo at:
We have one viz very much ready... who is next!? You can work in teams is that is better...
You can use that as reference to guide your analyses...
Thanks again, @SamAI-Software!
hi, @akash-goswami! Welcome to the room... absolutely, github is also an option! Let us know what for project you would like to do. Our list and repo with some possible questions (feel free to suggest yours!):
Some other interesting findings:

@krisgesling ok, lets get started :)
I've been working as UX designer for a few years and what I've learned during that time is that we should always tell users a story from A to Z, step by step, fulfilling their basic need/expectations first and only then taking care of special features.
Your gender visualization is great! But it doesn't look like a beginning of a journey, does it?
Just imagine that you land a website of FCC Survey 2016 for the first time and you never saw it before. What do you want to know first? Probably it's something like:
And your previous version was very good for that! Of course you will want to know about gender, too, but it's probably the next step.
So anyway we will need to have a country breakdown at least by CountryLive and Age. Somebody can do it from your forks, or you can do it yourself and that would be a great contribution to the project and also you will be featured even more (I'm pretty sure, that @evaristoc will take care of that :+1: )
If you decide to create it yourself, then I have one cool idea for you! Check out stackoverflow's survey the first Geography section has a map, but there are also 3 buttons, which can switch 3 different maps! That's a great feature, but a weak implementation, because all their 3 maps looks almost the same.
I suggest us to take this feature, but make a better implementation!
You can extent your visualization, so it will show us:
Until you make a decision, I have reserved Demographics section for you FreeCodeCamp/2016-new-coder-survey#41
