Motivation

As I work in a company where Big Data is fundamental, learning Spark was almost mandatory. Luckily, Udacity presented me with this Capstone Project called Sparkify, a fictional music streaming service that would like to predict Churn based on its users’ behaviors.
I had a lot of fun doing this project and, after this post, I can proudly announce that I am getting my Udacity’s Data Science Nanodegree Certificate!

Motivation

As a mechanical engineering undergraduate currently researching rotating machines for energy generation, I figured it’s about time I use some Data Science to analyze Brazil’s last decades’ energy investments.
This is my very first post on the topic, so I will not do any fancy machine learning modeling just yet, but I intend to continue writing about it, so stay in touch !

Introduction

I downloaded the data from the World Bank, where you can find lots of resources to assist you on your analysis.
The specific link I downloaded from can be found here.

With this Data I intend to…
