Thanks @nityesh! I’m very excited about this project. It was actually one of the first almost fully independent projects that I did and , DQ helped a lot in improving my coding skills. Your platform really challenges people to code, solve problems and think analytically.

Well done @juanjosemunozp, @veratsien, @adewalade, @jithins123 and @omarstinnerdata!

Happy coding everyone :blush:

Wow, thank you for the honor! I’m thrilled! :star_struck:

I really enjoyed experimenting with Plotly, and definitely recommend trying it out. It generates beautiful plots effortlessly, static, or interactive. It was also fun to get familiar with a different plotting library.

I just love how this community inspires us to learn, explore, share, and help each other. Great work everyone! :vulcan_salute:

Thank you! @nityesh What I learned doing this extension was that it is always important to do more than what you are asked to do if you truly want to master a skill(programming/coding in our case). Being curious pushes you to learn new ways of solving a problem. This in turn helps you build your coding knowledge as you get exposed to the new material, which then helps you get a better feel of which code to use to answer specific problems. Always go above and beyond.

Dataquest has really helped me in learning and advancing my coding skills. The structure of the missions combined with the respective practice problems has really helped fortify my knowledge of programming. This community is great for us to ask, share, and receive feedback on our work. Many thanks and congratulations to this week’s community champions. Keep up the good work! :call_me_hand:

Thanks a lot @nityesh for this. It is a pleasure to know that my guided project reviews are helpful. I always wanted someone to have a better look at the projects I share here. So it is just that I am doing what I expect from others to do for me. Thanks again for this honour. And congratulations to everyone who made it to the list this week.

A lot of interesting things were shared by our community in the past week. Here are the Community Champions who shared some of them: :heavy_heart_exclamation:

Personal project sharers:

  • @bholaprasad26 shared an amazing end-to-end project in our Community. Here Bhola did everything from scraping the data to doing exploratory analysis and creating charts to deploying it through Heroku on a website! You can check it out here. And while you are at it, please give Bhola some feedback. :slight_smile:

  • @KevinLuigiReyes shared another cool personal Kaggle project with us last week. This project does an analysis of grocery store dataset. Kevin pursued this project after learning a few courses at Dataquest. So, if you are looking to do something similarly independent, this is a great place to get some motivation.

Alternate Solution providers:

This week we also noticed a new trend in the Community - community members sharing alternate solutions to our courses. I believe that they create an awesome supplementary learning resource for all learners.

We want to encourage this behaviour. Therefore, I am calling out 2 of the people who provided us with alternative solutions:

  • @masterryan.prof shared an alternative solution for one of our Command Line missions.
  • @jonathan.s.spratt shared with us a briefer way of solving one of the problems from the SQL section.

Writers:

@fedepereira shared an insightful article with us about Showing your insights in R markdown as slides! Check it out below:

  • @WilfriedF took a leap of faith and joined the Driven Data competition. He was kind enough to share his detailed experience with our community! Do give @WilfriedF’s post a read - it is very inspiring!

Guided Project Sharers:

Finally, I want to call out @jemartinezm1 and @artur.sannikov96 for giving helpful feedback to learners who share their Guided Projects in our community!

Thanks for participating in our community, Champions! :heart:

I am proud to present each of you with:

  • A 7 day extension on your current Dataquest subscription :rocket:
  • An exclusive Community Champions badge in our Community :medal_sports:

Thanks again! I wasn’t expecting it this time :blush:

As always I learn a lot by reviewing the projects. In some cases, I see what has to be avoided in other I find out what I can improve about my projects.

Well done @bholaprasad26, @KevinLuigiReyes, @masterryan.prof, @jonathan.s.spratt, @fedepereira, @WilfriedF, @adrianzchmn, @gualar and @jemartinezm1.

Happy coding, everyone:)

Thank You very much @nityesh !

Really I didn’t expect this kind of recognition. However , I am really happy to hear that my reviews were useful.
I love both DQ learning platform and the community. Specially I learnt a lot by reading others’ projects.
Cheers…

Thank you!
I recall when I just joined the community and saw first Community Champions’ projects, I was just astonished and thought that their level was unachieveble. But, instead of get discouraged, I got inspired by these projects (and other wonderful projects which were not recognized as Com. Champ. for whatever reason). And here I am, annouced a Community Champion :wink:

I like your perspective. I was quite intimidated by their projects at first, too. But now that you mention it, they are more inspirational and challenging in a good way than intimidating :slight_smile:

Thank you! I completed the functional programming module on the Data Engineer path. This was where the idea came from.
