National Data Science Challenge 2020 (https://careers.shopee.co.id/ndsc)

I had a fun time last Saturday (28 November 2020) joining the National Data Science Challenge 2020 by RISTEK-BRIN and Shopee with Imam Bhaskara, Gaody Mohammad, and Ibnu Yudistira in our Nightrider team. Even though we applied for the Beginners category, we are forced to change to the Advanced category as the committee founded that we’re not suitable in that category (I think it’s because of me, sorry guys). Fearlessly, we joined the competition even though we’re not sure on what will we face because ((( why not, eh? ))) it’s a great opportunity for us to learn.

As expected…


Hello Everyone! I kinda intrigued with analyzing the comments from our Among Us project (see “Our Projects Section” to sneak peek about our previous projects). As I haven’t got the ability to do an advanced text analytics such as sentiment analysis, I started with a simple Word Cloud to gather a general overview of what people think about this game.

In case you missed it, in our previous project, we made some analysis from the Google Play Store User Ratings and Comments for Among Us Game. …

The second material (05/03/2020) of the Solver Society program that I participated in some time ago invited me and other solvers to think critically and solve strategic problems. This material was filled by Mr. Fajar Jaman as the CEO of IYKRA whose ability in critical thinking and problem solving is undoubted with not only full of experience as a practitioner, but also experience as a founder and CEO.

At the beginning of the session, we are formed into several groups so that the knowledge we received can be directly applied. Five groups were created and I joined a group consisting…

As I promise in the previous article about the Solver Society by IYKRA, I will share the materials I got during the first seminar of this program.

For more than a month I have participated in the Solver Society program organized by IYKRA from the beginning of March to mid-April. This program was held with the initial aim to explore further about the data from the virus that is currently driving us, Corona Virus or COVID-19. From the information I got from my friends through Mr. Fajar Jaman’s LinkedIn as the CEO of IYKRA, I volunteered to participate in this program. Out of hundreds of registrants, I became 1 of about 25 other solvers who had the opportunity to take part in this corona virus data exploration…
