I finished this project again, for the third time. The first two times I used PyCharm and the final version in Jupyter. The first two times I just practice what I knew. In the end, I had a lot of fun, I took my laptop to work to write code between classes. It was spectacularly fun.
Was it easy, difficult, just right? The answer I have is: yes… I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it. The project basically said: “Here is data, use it.” As a newb in data science, that was kind of intimidating. But the hints did have options for me to investigate.
Aside from that, the project is as easy or difficult as you are prepared for.
Estimated time to complete: I want to say about 16 hours… But that is all three attempts. I spent a lot of time on the last two parts. The first two were easy, but I spent some time making the code look pretty. A big chunk of my time went to panicking about what the project should be about. The scope and goal part. (Paralysis by perfection grabbed a hold of me.)
