you never know when excel will come handy on the job.

very powerful if you can get the advanced concept for analytics.

DAX, power query, power pivot, pivot table and cool visualization will do fine.

Interesting!

This scope can be applied to virtually all forms of online conversations and social media platforms to understand patterns, styles and relationships in the communication process.

I recall a friend doing this to analyze trolls and their allies during the 2019 election. It was fascinating and sparked my interest in data analysis.

What tools did you use to mine and analyze the data?

Well done!



Thanks for the feedback!

Yeah, it certainly can. I think that's even a more direct application. Mine is kinda tangential. I used beautifulsoup to scrape the thread and used basic linear algebra to mine relationships. Here, scipy and numpy came in handy.
I have the notebook uploaded at this link, should anyone be interested (link)

@Cochtrane, please I need the link. I also have one request from you.... Please the dataset you scraped some times back about Nairaland posts which you Analyzed with R (you also did a wordcloud of it) Can you please update the data. The dataset currently has about 2800 rows or there about. Please help update the scraping of the data and make the GitHub link available for us.
God bless
You can get the dataset here. Or if you want the scraper, check here

Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by cochtrane: 4:01am On Jan 19
I conducted another quick job trying to find the shortest path through all airports in Nigeria. This shortest tour doesn't consider where you start out, but only considers the optimal way to travel across all airports in Nigeria. The tool of choice this time is simulated annealing. A technique often used for solving the traveling salesman problem, the class to which this problem belongs.

In effect, if we had to check every possibility while solving this problem, the solution will be in exponential time because we have to check every permutation of airport. With larger datasets, this can easily become an intractable problem. Using simulated annealing, we allow the algorithm to make mistakes earlier in the computation, but ensure that as the computation progresses it become less likely to make a mistake. That progression is approached as a cooling, where we introduce a temperature variable which becomes smaller as the temperature "cools".

Anyways, you can find the solution here. And this gif (shown as a picture below, but viewable on the notebook) shows just how the algorithm progresses while it looks for an optimal solution. Just to add, this is an optimization problem.

I just subscribed to their annual premium plan at a discounted price for $99.

Hoping the journey to becoming a data analyst will be swift.

I also use datacamp. They offer really quality resources. They also recently improved on their site layout. I think you'll enjoy it.

Re: Chronicle Of A Data Scientist/analyst by daryur01: 5:28pm On Jan 27
Well, someone actually said you should never pay anyone to learn programming. That's absolutely a wrong advice to follow. Believe me, though you can learn to program on your own but not everybody has that capability to learn on his/her own especially something like programming.
If you are good at learning, you can always learn on your own and practice on your own bit if you aren't, don't force yourself to learn something you know you can't possibly learn on your own or you'll end up being a zero-level programmer.
JavaScript is probably the simplest programming language of all the programming languages used today. But even with that, some people who have contacted me and I gave resources to learn web development ended up saying it was too difficult.

So to be sincere, don't ever let anyone mislead you by telling you not to pay anyone to learn. At least that what some people do for a living and they have as many students as you can think if giving them votes of thanks every single day.

If you can learn in your own, do so. And if you can't, pay for learning. In fact, everyone knows that whatever you pay for, you don't dare joke with it unless you didn't pay enough for it. Believe me.
If you plan to learn web development, take HTML, CSS and JavaScript and scale up from there and you'll be off to a great start.

If you are beginner web developer (hoping to crate websites), try at least to learn those three and you'll be good to start getting web development clients who only need frontend skills and boom you're making money already. Though I'll advice to never stop at those three.
Make sure any tutorial you take is an interactive one and the one you think is best for you to learn from.
If you are a beginner, I'm holding a WhatsApp class for free where I'll be dropping videos for you.
Even if what you have to practice now is your smartphone, you won't lack behind. I'll be sharing with you some useful tools you can use to code just like you would do if you were using your PC.
The class us for beginner web developers or I should rather say aspiring web developers.
Join as soon as possible if you're interested.

That's nice.
I will advice you go through the thread from page zero, to at least page 10.

For the data analysis aspect, Be grounded in EXCEL, PowerBI or TABLEAU, MYSQL.

If you are willing to go further, learn python ( the libraries for data science) plus some other areas.

Good luck bro
