Analyze Survey Data

This would require some context, if it is something like an opinions survey, certain sentiments would go together (or are polar opposites).

Bitcoin Price Notification App

This would require two things:

  • API access to multiple exchange indices
  • Livestreaming Prices on Screen with proper CSS/UX

BeautifulSoup is a classic library with lots of tutorials, but there are modern takes on the HTML parsing, like github.com/maxhumber/gazpacho/ that are also worth a look.
