The concept of “Ikigai” or “a reason for being” is one of the Japanese concepts that recently getting popular. It is very interesting concept about how each individual has a personal belief in the meaning of his/her own lives.

how to make use of this huge amount of data?

One way to solve this problem is to migrate data to the data warehouse, which is the database built for analytics task. That being said, building a data warehouse is an expensive and time-consuming process.

This is the little gem I learned from a course on AWS Developer Associate Certificate. Normally, hosting a website on normal web hosting will cost at least $5 / month, but AWS S3 offers the 1-year free tier of 5GB storage and 15GB bandwidth. After a year, it becomes $0.025 per GB of storage and $0.14 per GB of bandwidth, which is still super cheap. This article will walk you through the step of setting up a new static website which linked to a subdomain.

Before we begin the step-by-step guide, let me give you the background on what is…

The first step in building a data science model is: Collecting data.

For beginners in data science, it is easier to grab ready-to-use data files in CSV format from many available public data sources. If anyone is interested, I will list the sites for free publicly available in the future article.

This article is for anyone who would like to learn how to scrape website quickly and easily using the tool in Python you already know (Pandas). I will cover a little bit on the basics of web scraping before talking about the libraries.
