Last Week (20) in the FCC Data Science Room


The Survey 2016 dataset is available!!!

This week we did more work on the Survey 2016 and started working on the final dataset (@erictleung and co.), with reports by @SamAI-Software and me (@evaristoc). Some draft for visualizations in d3.js were also discussed. Because the purpose is using d3.js for the project, we were also collecting references about d3.js: best practices, usual programming patterns, and examples, just to get inspired.

The analyses of the dataset have been carried out using R, but other tools are welcome.

For those with an interest in Machine Learning, @zcassini and other people have been providing links about free-access books and courses about the topic, and discussed things like Support Vector Machines, kaggle, Multivariate Statistics with some mention of Linear as well as Multilinear Algebra.

If you want to contribute with visualizations about the Survey 2016 dataset, please keep checking the repo and this list:
