About the Challenge


In this challenge, you will be working with online review/ratings data, performing a series of tasks consisting of data wrangling, exploration and modeling. The challenge requires you to complete the data tasks, showing your work in a Jupyter notebook, and answer task-related questions in both the Jupyter notebook and in your QuantHub portal.

When the challenge starts you'll receive an email to log into the QuantHub portal and begin. You'll have ample time to complete the challenge and you're not required to complete the challenge in one session. 

This challenge was designed by QuantHub's Chief Data Scientist, Nathan Black.
