Thank you! It was a great fun to discover new libraries and get some nice results at the end. It´s my advice to everyone - not to be afraid of new libraries/solutions/etc., it´s a perfect time for experiments while we are still learning :slight_smile:

@nityesh Thank you for mentioning my ‘first’ project. It was a unique challenge in the sense that I can’t use any of the convenient libraries I’ve been using so it requires a lot more patience and creativity in solving the problem. I definitely didn’t give it 100% because of my limited patience… It’s like trying to paint with three colors. :sweat_smile:

Bravo to all beginners for completing this project as the first. Coming from a ‘finisher’, it’s not an easy one. It really only gets easier later on. So keep up the good work and rock on! :partying_face:

Happy new year folks!

The first cohort of Community Champions of 2021 looks amazing: :heart_eyes:

Most liked:

Article:

  • @veratsien, one of our most active learners in the Community, shared a very cool personal project in this article - they demonstrated their analytics skills by analyzing their journey of learning from Dataquest!

    They created a dataset by parsing the weekly accomplishment emails that Dataquest sends. I love the creativity!

Personal Projects:

  • @michael.hoang17 shared an exceptional personal project that analyses Gym memberships. Michael was able use their knowledge from taking our R path to do a personal project with their employer.

    It must have taken a tremendous amount of effort as Michael has done everything - creating the dataset (which they have generously shared on Github), cleaning the dataset and analyzing it!

    Whether you’re learning R or Python, you should check it out.

  • @artur.sannikov96 put their knowledge of web scraping with BeautifulSoup to use in a personal project where they collect the metadata of more than 11000 books from the Blackwell’s Bookshop website. Artur clearly documents and walks us through every step of creating the dataset.

Complementary Resources:

NEW: Starting this week, the Community Champions program is also going to recognize learners who share links to resources on the Internet that complement one of our missions/screens.

I believe that using multiple resources to learn a concept can provide a better learning experience.

If you would like to participate, simply:

  1. create a new topic in the Resources category
  2. add link to the resource
  3. talk about how it is helpful
  4. add a link to the relevant mission screen from Dataquest

For example, @aris shared a great resource for learning about “phantom argument” in Python Object Oriented Programming here.

Guided Project sharers:

  • @seannguyen.2016 shared a great project on Answering Business Questions for Chinook using SQL.

    As @Elena_Kosourova said, this project stands out because of :

    very good and easy-to-follow storytelling and project structure, amazing visualizations (emphasizing the bars of interest was a good idea), adding comments not only to the python part of the code but also inside the queries themselves, writing separately main results and recommendations in the conclusion, good usage of bold font where necessary.

  • @jeffreybarfield shared another great project on Visualizing Earnings based on college majors. Check out this project to learn more about the new library that Jeffrey uses for data visualisation - Altair.

Guided Project reviewers:

Finally, I want to thank @brayanopiyo18 and @jithins123 for reviewing so many Guided Projects in the Community and giving constructive feedback on them. :slight_smile:
