About this event


		Code-Along #7: Identifying Trends in US Traffic Data image

Are you

  • proficient in Python?
  • interested in working with over 7M rows of data?
  • hoping to understand the right way to approach a new dataset?

Join UpLevel in our monthly Code-Along!

In this month's code-along, UpLevel co-founder and instructor Jackie will teach you to mine insights from US traffic data, making use of relevant algorithms and models to perform data analysis. If you've always wondered how to approach a new (to you) dataset from scratch, this session will teach you some tips and tricks just for that.

What You'll Do

  1. Acquire US traffic data
  2. Use various algorithms, models and statistical tests to identify the most obvious patterns present in the dataset
  3. In particular, perform time-series analysis

The Bring-Your-Own-Project Series

Some of our Datanauts have approached us to ask if they could get additional assistance on their own side projects. We've asked for their permission to bring these projects to you, during our monthly code-alongs.

If you have a project or a dataset that you'd like us to explore, hit us up at rachel@uplevel.work and let's work something out!

Datanaut Perks

UpLevel Datanauts* will also get access to the following

  • AMA in the final 15 min
  • recording of both the code-along and the AMA
  • project notebook to accompany the code-along

Pay-as-You-Wish

A number of folks mentioned that they loved our code-alongs and would be interested in donating to show their appreciation. If you would like, you may donate any amount (we recommend $10) via the following methods:

  • [Local] via PayNow/PayLah to UEN 201921291D
  • [International] via PayPal to jackie@uplevel.work

If you are currently of limited means, rest assured that donation is not compulsory, and you may still attend the code-along for free.
