Engaging Data is the product of me just sitting on the couch and messing around with my computer when I have free time (which luckily I have a fair amount of these days).
If you have any ideas for interesting data sets, educational tools or any other general suggestions or requests, please let me know. I’m especially interested in hearing from educators and others who work in the public sector as I may be able to help out with projects, etc. .
My current tech stack and workflow:
I use Python mainly for automating data acquisition from web resources and APIs and data processing, manipulation and calculation. I use the Pandas python library primarily for this as it has got pretty good tools for dealing with tabular data and doing calculations and manipulations.
