  • [OC] Word cloud of Eurovision song titles (1956-2022)
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful | 20 May 2022
    This was my submission to the [TidyTuesday](https://github.com/rfordatascience/tidytuesday) challenge this week ([see my original Twitter post here](https://twitter.com/MrPecners/status/1526761640410095622)). * Tools used: I built this with R using the {wordcloud2} package, which itself uses the [wordcloud2.js library](https://github.com/timdream/wordcloud2.js/).* **Code**: https://github.com/Pecners/tidytuesday/blob/master/2022/2022-05-17/final_plot.R* **Data source**: This data was scraped from the Eurovision website by Tanya Shapiro (Twitter: @tanya_shapiro). You can access the data on TidyTuesday's repo [here](https://github.com/rfordatascience/tidytuesday/blob/master/data/2022/2022-05-17/eurovision.csv).I honestly don't know much about the history of Eurovision, but it seems there was only a final round up until 2004. In any case, that's how the data was provided. Therefore, there are more songs per year from years since 2004.To process the title text, I removed stopwords from 15 languages, and I removed leading apostrophes (e.g. l'amour became amour).
  • [OC] Most common words in book titles on the NYTimes best seller list (Oct. 1931 - Dec. 2020)

    This was my submission (Twitter post here) to the TidyTuesday project this week. Tools used: R, specifically the {wordcloud2} package, which itself leverages the wordcloud2.js library.

    Try getting comfortable importing data, cleaning/processing data, and creating plots. Maybe even try to recreate plots you've seen in the wild. Through the process, you'll get better at the nuts and bolts of working in R, and you'll have a plot to show for it. The TidyTuesday project is a cool resource -- they publish a dataset every Tuesday, and them people submit graphics they created based on the data. Everyone shares their code too, so you can see how they go about analyzing the data and then creating the plots.
  • Anyone used JavaScript for quant research?

    I still use R for most of my data management and statistics because the language was built for it. Checkout this free book by Hadley Wickham for a quick intro to data science in R. I like using different packages tailormade for whatever analysis I am doing. If you know the name of the analysis you are doing there are plenty of tutorials on how to do it. I did have a couple of statistics courses that taught me the basics beforehand, so you might want to seek out a more theory based statistics book or something like this one. Plus there is a cool online community called Tidyverse Tuesdays that helps you practice wrangling, analyzing, and visualizing with example datasets and share it for critique. I chose to learn R before Python, just because it was more specifically narrowed in on statistics, but I do plan on learning Python eventually for other things (I currently have no opinion on it). R was fairly easy to pick up and there are plenty of blogs, and youtubers (I like Julia Silge she works at R Studio) that run you through projects they create.
  • [Q]Modeling strictly positive counts using generalized linear models
    1 project | reddit.com/r/statistics | 10 Mar 2022
    Hi, I was looking at the latest Tidytuesday dataset, concerning Erasmus visits. In the dataset, there is a variable mobility_duration, which represents the total number of days the learning trip took. This variable is essentially counts, except it cannot have a value of 0 (as you can’t have trip that lasts 0 days).

    I'd enthusiastically recommend Tidy Tuesday, a community project to give R people a reason to do something different, fun, and doable in a single coding session. There might be a learning curve just to participate, which could be annoying, but it's the most supportive and friendliest coding community I've run into online. Checking out other people's code is also a great way to see lessons from R4DS in the wild, since Tidy Tuesday participants tend to be coming from R4DS / Tidyverse material. Links for Tidy Tuesday site, GitHub, and Twitter.

  • Teaching Myself R, Any Tips?

    It might seem tricky at first, but you'll likely get a strong grounding relatively quickly. After that the best way to improve will be taking on small projects and reading others' code. The R community had been doing Tidy Tuesday (believe they still are) which I recommended to all my students when I TAed R / Stats courses.
  • Is anyone else terrible at coding? I’m taking my first coding class and it’s really hard to grasp it.

    What language? I have found r/stata and r/RStudio to be really great places to learn Stata and R Studio, respectively. In my own attempts to learn how to code, I found it helpful to use the Tidy tuesdays data set to learn how to do simple data cleaning and visualization. It's oriented around R studio, but they provide the data in .csv so you can use it in pretty much any program.

    You might want to check out Tidy Tuesday. Every week they provide a dataset for people to analyze and practice their data wrangling skills.
