You are very welcome, @shas! :star_struck:

Could you please give me your email address? I mean the one to which you receive messages and communications from Dataquest. I would like to give you a 7-day extension for becoming a Community Champion, but for some reason, the email mentioned in your profile here is not visible in our system :nerd_face: You can send it to me in a personal message, if you want. Thanks!

Another week full of admirable Community Champions, both sharers and reviewers! :partying_face: :heart: :trophy: I’m really fascinated by your activity, guys! :heart_eyes_cat: :dizzy: :medal_sports:

Individual Project sharers:

Dataquest Project sharers:

  • The project of @tosingeorge01 on Prison Helicopter Breaks stands out for its very clear structure, using additional libraries (especially plotly! :heart_eyes:), applying an advanced function crosstab, adding informative conclusion, and suggesting the way forward.

  • The project of @fab.pellegr on Handwritten digits classifier demonstrates fantastic code documentation, insightful visualizations, in-depth explanations, thorough and precise conclusion, and meaningful ideas for the next steps.

  • @martinnyaga96 shared his first but already amazing project on Analysing world data where he provided a lot of helpful background information, conducted very profound data analysis, and created clear and insightful visualizations.

Here are the Community Champions for this week: :tada:

Dataquest Project sharers:

  • @aarong98104 created a well-structured and easy-to-read project on I-94 Looking at Rain and Repeats For Answers to Traffic Volume where he dug deeper in the data and created insightful charts (especially those ones to illustrate the impact of duplicate entries on the observations).

  • @jesmaxavier shared his project on Analysis of EUR-USD exchange rates before and during Covid-19 where he investigated the impact of the Covid pandemic on the USD-EUR exchanging rates. The project has capturing storytelling, eye-catching plots supporting the conclusions, and a helpful learning section.

  • @sv.dolgushina shared her project on Ups and Downs of Euro where she investigated the trends of different world currencies in the last 20 years. Her project is a great example of thorough background research, including exploring an up-to-date dataset with the most recent trends, that resulted in informative storytelling supported by outstanding plots.

  • @sahiba.kaur.stats shared a well-structured and easy-to-follow project on ebay Car Sales using Pandas and Matplotlib where she did much more than was asked in the instructions (including creating meaningful plots), explored plenty of interesting extra questions from various sides, and obtained curious insights.
