@PDJones welcome aboard Dataquest!!

Congrats :handshake: on completing your first project. I’m sure you are proud and this is the first step to many more wonderful projects on DQ. A couple of helpful pointers from me regarding your project

Presentation Style
  • Ensure to re-run the entire project after you are done completing one. This is how to do it image

  • Include an introduction and conclusion section which summarizes your intention and understanding of the project. In fact include more sections where appropriate. I would direct you to read some of the older projects we currently have in DQ to get an idea

  • While you have run the code based on the instruction, I would recommend you add context to it by providing the user with explanations and your own analysis. This is what is expected as you progress as a data analyst. The reader wants to know what you analyzed and what you gathered from that analysis.

Coding Style
  • I would recommend the addition of more comments. What you’ll realize a couple of projects down the line, when you return to this project is, you are unsure of what you did. Comments serve as a bookmark. If you haven’t gotten to this part of the lessons, revisit this project after you do so.
  • I didn’t go through the code at great depth but seeing as you have followed the instructions provided by DQ, I feel there should be no issues.
  • There are a few challenge questions at the end of the project, I recommend that you give those a shot. Those will help to differentiate your project and make them stand out.

  • Once you are comfortable with data visualization, add more of those and expand your analysis further.

Keep the momentum going and project :rocket: on!
