@krisgesling Yeah I've never even been to reddit
Finished all the D3 challenges; May have time to look at this soon
How's the data cleanup progressing?

@jboxman the first dataset is already cleaned but not pushed yet.

/@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):
https://medium.freecodecamp.com/we-asked-15-000-people-who-they-are-and-how-theyre-learning-to-code-4104e29b2781#.tvuzyblkg

@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!

We implemented a control to check those visualizations that are either work in progress or ready

The control page is in the repo at:

FreeCodeCamp/2016-new-coder-survey#41

We have one viz very much ready... who is next!? You can work in teams is that is better...

Thanks, @SamAI-Software!


Also...

Some preliminary results by @SamAI-Software

You can use that as reference to guide your analyses...

Thanks again, @SamAI-Software!

OK who knows statistics very well and "linear programming"?
Ayan Ghatak
@AyanGhatak
@jacobbogers I am not great at it. But I share interest in statistics and problem solving. Would also like to revisit the "linear programming" stuffs if you lemme know what you are looking for?

@Ayan, beyong simplex method I didnt do anything in LP? so only basics, no advanced stuff from the 90's

@krisgesling
I just joined here :-) Greetings of the day.
I loved the viz at http://codepen.io/krisgesling/pen/GZwYKV?editors=0010. Would like to contribute as well.
By any chance is it possible to host it on github instead of code pen.
evaristoc
@evaristoc

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!):

@jacobbogers hi! why are you asking?
evaristoc
@evaristoc
@jacobbogers I don't think that, conceptually, LP has changed much since :)
Jacob Bogers
@jacobbogers
@evaristoc yeah, i know, for LP was like a side thing for Linear Algebra course, was nice
but I need to get my head down with "non-parametric statistics" first
Jacob Bogers
@jacobbogers
No new fundamental developments (mathematical) in LP since the 1993. @evaristoc

I wish I hadn't left my basic statistics with Excel book at home; I won't be back to collect it for at least 4 weeks lol
survey-data-dictionary.md contains all the questions?

I want to setup a working HRM pipeline for React/Babel and then I'll circle back to this
Stuck on Windows 7 right now; I'm excited installing git for Windows includes a functional bash environment! Having access to vi, curl, and grep is handy
Eric Leung
@erictleung
@jboxman the survey-data-dictionary.md doesn't actually have all the questions. I missed more than a couple questions when I created it. You can either check the survey-questions.txt document, or my soon-to-be updated version of the data dictionary for the questions.

Okay, cool
Thanks!

@akash-goswami welcome and thanks for the nice comment :)
I just want to clean up the code a bit and make the layout responsive before I push it to github. Hopefully I can get that done today

@evaristoc Great. I am currently getting acquainted with the data. I will let the group know what question I would like to answer :-)
@krisgesling Awesome. :-)

@SamAI-Software
@krisgesling can you please wait for a little bit? I have some great ideas about your visualization, but didn't find any time to right you about it. I will do it today!
Kris Gesling
@krisgesling
@SamAI-Software hey I'm always happy for more ideas, and will try to incorporate whatever I have time for.
@akash-goswami got it done, it's on github now if anyone wants to fork it for another map https://github.com/krisgesling/FCC-Gender-Map

Sam Aiken
@SamAI-Software

@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:

  • Where all these respondents come from?
  • Is it a survey from USA only?
  • Does this survey include ppl from all other the world?
  • How many ppl (in percentage terms) are from Europe, Asia, Africa, your own country?

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:

  • Amount or respondents (by default)
  • Gender (switch with a button)
  • Age (switch with a button)

Until you make a decision, I have reserved Demographics section for you FreeCodeCamp/2016-new-coder-survey#41
