When I read the December edition of the Data is Plural newsletter, one data set in particular stuck out to me…because I knew the DS would love it!

That’s right!!! There’s a data set about boy bands. This is proof that there is data about ANYTHING. The internet boy bands database can be found here. The data is available on github here. There are two files to download and join: bands.csv and boys.csv.

They’d be quite smart to read the github page if they want to understand the data sooner.

Requirements:

  1. Download both data sets.
  2. If data prep is required, they can use either Alteryx or Tableau Prep.
  3. They are more than welcome to supplement it with additional data.
  4. They can use any data visualization tool of their choice.
  5. Before 1pm, they must have their dashboards uploaded to Tableau Public or the Power BI gallery.

What a way to end a great week! The team has done fantastically well!
