The Community Conundrums program provides weekly DSS puzzles for you all to try your hand at - but no need to limit yourself to this week’s challenge!
We’ve created a handy catalog of all past challenges to help you find the one you want to tackle with difficulty levels and topic labeling. Here you can find all past Conundrums and tackle whichever you choose!
|#1||Conundrum 1: Law and Order Modeling||Intermediate||Modeling|
|#2||Conundrum 2: Holiday Hoodies||Basic||Data Visualization|
|#3||Conundrum 3: Cohort Conundrum||Basic||Data Prep|
|#4||Conundrum 4: Building Predictions||Intermediate||Modeling|
|#5||Conundrum 5: Natural Followers||Intermediate||Data Prep|
|#6||Conundrum 6: Finding Meaningful Values||Intermediate||Data Prep|
|#7||Conundrum 7: The Job Hunt||Intermediate||Modeling
|#8||Conundrum 8: A Window into my Orders Soul||Intermediate||Data Visualization|
|#9||Conundrum 9: Month Forecasting||Basic||Modeling|
I think on that level you are correct - my reasoning here was that while Conundrum 1 was harder to get *good* results for it was really quite easy to at least complete to some level.
But of course open to feedback on if that is the right approach to picking challenge levels - and looking forward to seeing what your fellow CC maestra @anita-clmnt thinks 🙂
I think I agree with Tom. Even if I didn't look at the difficulty level before working of those conundrums, for some reason I would have expected the level to reflect how easy it would be to get a 'decent' performance for the modeling exercises. It also takes more time in my opinion to build a model that works than to complete a data prep/viz exercise.
But I do like that the modeling exercises are not that easy, it brings some challenges! 🙂
I’d like to say here that I have enjoyed the back and forth we have done looking at conundrum #1 an #5. The interactions have provided the ability to learn together. Thank you. I also agree that easy is not the point. I see value in the ability to solve a problem together with a common tool set and learning from each other as a value proposition.
Glad to hear you are relishing the challenge @anita-clmnt and it's been great to see your collaboration with @tgb417 on them!
Ok I am persuaded - I'll do a update of the challenge levels with both your points in mind.
