I’m new here and excited to get started. I’ve followed (and… almost completed) a Data Analyst path on DataQuest, which I loved. I wanted to try a new platform and broaden my “programming world view” a little bit.
I have a general idea of what I want to be able to do, and a more specific project, and I’m a bit unsure of how to get there.
I am super interested in data story-telling. I’ve gotten to know Python a bit, and enjoyed learning the language. Ultimately, I would love to be able to present webpages of specific data storytelling or “scrollytelling”, very much like The Pudding.
One of those personal projects being analyzing data from the Metal Archives. I wanted to capture data from it, but looks like Beautiful Soup isn’t going to help me here?
Thank you so much to anyone who will take time to read and/or answer this!
(Disclaimer: I’m fine with all of this taking 5 years, I like the idea of having a broad project to give me purpose while learning, and a more specific one to give me focus, but I’m not in a hurry to change careers or anything.)
