Review Guided Project - Exploring Hacker News Posts

Dear dataquest community,

I just finished my first project on this platform : “Exploring Hacker News Posts”.
Don’t hesitate to tell me how I can improve myself, whether it is on the programing or the explaining part. :grinning:

You can find my work on Github here.

If you prefer, you can also download it : Sam_HackerNews_Project.ipynb (16.2 KB)

Thank you very much !

hey @sam_47

Congratulations on completing your 1st project and thank you for sharing it with us!

First things first, it’s neat and elegant to read. :ok_hand:

You have created a narrative and used it well. This includes:

  • intro to the question/ objective of the analysis
  • highlighted the technical aspects required/ used for the given analysis
  • the conclusion with mention of timezone is nice.

The only thing I would add here:

  • the print of count_by_hour or comments_by_hour or avg_by_hour etc dictionaries.
    a vertical, sorted and formatted content will give me the analysis result at the top (as top 3 or 5) itself.

Dear Rucha,

Thank you for your strong reply ! :smiley:
You’re definitely right, it’s always better to have a sorted and formatted print, even for intermediate steps ! I won’t forget it for my next project.
