Due to the free GPU available in google colab and the need to avoid the difficulty of installing a lot of dependencies on your laptop, connecting kaggle dataset to colab is useful as it prevents constantly uploading it anytime you want to use it.

Of course there are other alternatives like using the kaggle as a colab alternative, uploading the dataset to google drive or dropbox.

churn vs retention from dribbble.com

Overview

Predicting churn rates is a challenging and common problem that data scientists and analysts regularly encounter in any customer-facing business. It minimizes customer defection by detecting on time which customers are likely to cancel their subscription.

In this post, we are going to use the sparkify dataset to work on the prediction process and because it’s a heavy data we’ll use Spark to engineer the relevant features and then build machine learning models for the prediction.

The goal is that at the end a full machine learning workflow would have been explained and also understand the fundamentals of Spark

In Practicing we Learn, My experience with Flutterwave API

An Application Programming Interface (API) is a set of requirements that determine how applications talk to one another, I learnt that whenever you use a desktop or laptop, APIs are what make it possible to move information between programs, when you are done reading this post you should see the icons to share this article . These are just links that call on the APIs associated with each of those services to allow users post the article without leaving the site itself.

Flutterwave is changing the way the world does business with Africa, they provide the underlying technology platform that…


The Andela bootcamp experience has been a roller-coaster. It’s the longest two weeks of my life, a two weeks programme that actually looks like two months. Before now, I don’t believe it’s possible to learn a programming language within two weeks

The first week of bootcamp came with the first set of challenges. Several tasks to complete every day which demanded a lot of effort and time. …


Today marks the end of the 3-day home sessions. Tomorrow, we will all be called to Andela Epic Tower for the next step. I don’t know what’s coming tomorrow, but I will prepare.

Today’s task is on front-end development: cloning an existing website. Although I have some experience in front end development, I am a bit worried about completing this task in time. I have decided to clone the University of Nigeria’s website (www.unn.edu.ng).

So far so good in the bootcamp home sessions, the wonderful feeling is that each day that passes you are actually a step closer to joining…


This is day 3 of the Andela Bootcamp, reporting live from my cubicle. It has been a day full of activities. Working on the exercises for the day

· two andelabs

· a simple command line application that consumes a Public API using an HTTP client library.

Today I get to learn something new, node.js, API and other technologies that I need to help me in taking the bull by the horn.

I have learned from the previous day the importance of feedback. Thanks to my BFA, I started thinking he was carrying my matter personally but the feedback I…
