Trangun - Machine Learning Pathway

Name: Trang Nguyen
Team: ML Team 8 (Bertinator)

Overview of Things Learned:

Technical Area: I learnt how to srape data from scratch using Scrapy and BeautifulSoup. I also learnt about the API calls that are really helpful to deal with infinite scrolling. Have a chance to learn more about BERT model.

Tools Used: Python, Pandas, Scrapy, BeautifulSoup, Git, Colab, etc.

Soft Skills: Collaborate with other teammates in different time zone and how to explain what I’m doing
