Problem #2 — Most online guides are incomplete

To add more strain to this process, Github’s documentation for setting up an SSH key is split across multiple…


Making a dashboard is a great way to communicate the value of data science projects to coders and non-coders alike!

For those of us that work in data science, often times our skills with data come with a lack of skill in front end development. Dash, a library built by Plotly, offers simple boiler plate code for developing interactive web applications in Python.

For inspiration, check out the Dash Gallery!
