Hello, I’m Guillermina. And I’m a #100DaysOfCode survivor.

As part of my this year’s Resolutions, I decided to embark on the #100DaysOfCode challenge. Don’t know what this is? No worries, I got you. The challenge consists of: 1) coding minimum an hour every day for the next 100 days, and 2) tweeting your progress every day using the #100DaysOfCode hashtag.

My journey started on January 1, 2021. I decided to go with Python as the main programming language. Overall, I found the experience awesome and would 100% recommend giving it a try.


It started like a times series project. It ended up being a PCA project.

For a couple of months now, I have been looking for projects to work on. I have gone from wanting to work on this NFL challenge, to actually building a web app with a friend that some people would probably classify as PG13 (one day I will write about it and, maybe, deploy it).

I ended up looking for datasets on Kaggle that could help me brush up my time series skills. You know… just for fun. That was when I ran into this dataset about wind power forecasting, and decided to give it a try.

Let’s do time series analysis!

After I cleaned up…


Imaginate estar buscando datos para después trabajarlos en Python y justo la data que necesitás la encontrás en una tabla en una página de Wikipedia, por ejemplo. ¿Qué hacés?

Imaginate estar buscando datos para después trabajarlos en Python y justo la data que necesitás la encontrás en una tabla en una página de Wikipedia, por ejemplo. ¿Qué hacés? ¿Los copiás y pegás en un Excel y después leés ese archivo con Pyhton? ¿Usás Beautiful Soup para buscar el tag HTML de la tabla que necesitás y después pasás los datos a un dataframe en pandas? ¿Creás el dataframe a mano? Podrías… Pero hay una solución más eficiente.

Encontré este tweet de Chris Moffitt que explica cómo leer tablas en HTML usando pandas, y como no había nada parecido…


¿Se le puede atribuir a la libertad económica las mejoras en la desigualdad de ingresos?

La influencia positiva de mayores niveles de libertad económica en el crecimiento, desarrollo, democracia y otros indicadores de progreso humano son bien conocidos. Las naciones que se ubican en el cuartil más alto de libertad económica superan a las que se encuentran en el cuartil inferior en una amplia gama de indicadores de bienestar. Los países económicamente libres tienen niveles más altos de ingreso per cápita y de esperanza de vida, disfrutan de niveles altos de libertades políticas y civiles, y tienden a posicionarse mejor en asuntos de igualdad de género. Sin embargo, algunos estudios que analizan la relación entre…


Can improvements in income inequality be attributed to economic freedom?

The positive influence of greater levels of economic freedom on growth, development, democracy, and other indicators of human progress has been well-documented. Nations in the top quartile of economic freedom outperform those in the bottom quartile on a wide range of well-being indicators. Economically free countries have higher levels of incomes per capita and life expectancy, enjoy higher levels of political and civil liberties, and tend to fare better in terms of gender equality. However, studies that look at the relationship between economic freedom and inequality produce conflicting or ambiguous results. Can improvements in income inequality be attributed to economic…


TLDR: Yes, I analyzed my iMessage conversations with my best friend using Python. But I promise there’s more to that.

Before I get to the coding part, here’s a short background story about how I ended up trying to master the messy art of analyzing a conversation on iMessage using Python…

I’ve always been the type of person who doesn’t like making presents. It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas, your birthday, or if you just had a baby; I just won’t get anything for you. For the record, this doesn’t mean I don’t like/love you. Another thing I dislike is receiving presents. I sometimes feel like I don’t need it or it just adds to the clutter… But I ain’t…
