It all started in May 2020 from a twitter post by @hackSultan.
At that time, I was already in stage 5 at startng internship.
I indicated interest,
And fortunately, I was selected, I was so happy when I saw the message requesting me to send a DM.
After the selection process, I was added to the slack workspace and my data was provided and the learning started.
What I learnt
Tasks was given to us to test how far we have gone on python and one of those task given was on data visualization.
I was to do an EDA in Python, it was a big one for me, I didn't have any excuse, data was already provided so with the help of the mentor @okoyecb and @OwojoriErnest, I was able to source for necessary resources and successfully carried out my first EDA.
After the EDA, we were given another task to develop a model and I was able to develop a prediction model.
All this tasks gave me a better understanding of data visualization and analysis with Python.
I didn't just learn Python on progate , I learnt about databases, commandline and Git.
What happens on the Slack workspace
The slack workspace is not all about learning, I was able to connect with people and share ideas.
we have different channels for different purposes.
My best channels are the #ama #games and #random channels.
My best moments were during the ama sessions and games night.
I also had amazing and supportive teammates on the Python track.
This 3 months Sprint learning will be ending in August, and I am very grateful for this opportunity.
Special thanks to all the sponsors of this sprint learning and the mentors.
The Learning continues!
