CREATE A SIMPLE IN-BROWSER SQL PLAYGROUND WITH PYSCRIPT
An example of what we’ll be doing in this article Finding an online SQL playground that’s both free and user-friendly can be a little bit challenging. Most platforms, such as StrataScratch for instance, restrict what free tier users can do, while others hide the querying interface under layers or ads and pop-ups. That being said, it’s still possible to find a couple of high-quality solutions, and I personally really like Coderpad.
GOING BEYOND THE SENTIMENT SCORE, PART 1: SENTIMENT.JS
An example of what we’ll be doing in this article A good few years back, I used to work for a bank where part of my daily job was to monitor and evaluate the “happiness score” of our customers across several social media platforms, using a tool called Brandwatch. Amongst many other things, this platform offered its customers the ability to define a set of rules and add a corresponding sentiment tag to each and every mention of their brand or of any of their competitors.

An example of what we’ll be doing in this article Please note that though I am currently employed by Meta, this article expresses my own views and wasn’t endorsed by my employer The past few years have seen the rise in popularity of new libraries whose purpose is to focus on ease of use and automation.

VISUALIZING TEXT DATA HIERARCHY WITH WORD TREES
An example of what we’ll be doing in this article Over the past few weeks, I have been looking for a quick and effective way of representing the structural differences within a set of similar-looking short sentences. To provide a bit of context, as we approached the end of 2022, my workmates and I got heavily involved in a planning phase for the new year to start. More specifically, we were asked to write a set of objectives and key results that would help drive a common strategy across our supported programs and pillars over the months to come.
MINIMALIST CSS FRAMEWORKS FOR YOUR DATA SCIENCE PROJECTS
An example of what we’ll be doing in this article: Disclaimer: I am absolutely not a web developer, which is actually why I wanted to write this article! One of the biggest challenges for data practitioners isn’t to explore or process data, but to find effective ways to showcase their work. Of course, we can always build dashboards, share some Jupyter notebooks with our workmates, or paste a few charts and a couple of tables into a Microsoft Word document.
PYSCRIPT, AKA PYTHON IN THE BROWSER
An example of what we’ll be doing in this article This article is going to be slightly shorter than the ones I usually post on my blog. As PyScript is after all still fairly new, I’ll need to get a bit more familiar with what this library has to offer before I can start working on more interesting projects and share them here. Why write an article about PyScript then if I’m not too comfortable with this framework yet, you might wonder?
BERTOPIC, OR HOW TO COMBINE TRANSFORMERS AND TF-IDF FOR TOPIC MODELLING
If you follow this blog, you are probably aware of my interest for natural language processing, and more specifically for topic modelling. As a matter of fact, some of the first articles that I wrote back in 2020 were themed around discussing things like TF-IDF and popular text clustering models. Anyway, if you also happen to share my passion for this niche field, it is quite likely that you have already worked with some or all of the following models:
