@WillM & @Dot .
Being one of Santa's oldest elves, I've got a few Christmas's under my belt. I wanted to help Santa and the elves in their app development. I'm providing the gang with a pre-release of my new, CReW Generate Dummy Variables macro (available here). With this macro, the process of creating Dummy Variables (or One-Hot-Encoding as described by @SydneyF in her blog, Encoding Variables Translating Your Data so the Computer Understands It. will be an easier task.
I also want to give a bit of encouragement to Santa's helpers, that Santa appreciates the effort. Maybe you've just got a really good idea for an App or macro and you struggle with how to make it Santa-Ready? You can post what you're trying to accomplish and let Santa's helpers give you guidance on what you might try to complete the task at-hand.
When Rudolph encountered the land of misfit toys, he found loving homes for all of the deserving toys. 2020 Santalytics is a call to community to work and act together. My macro will help the data scientist and those pretending to be the same. It also can be used as a training guide for building new macros. If you subscribe or read my blog, I'll be posting a little history of this macro on the 10th of December, 2020.
Here are some tips!:
- Define Scope: What you'll get and how much time to invest.
- Test, Test, Test: Keep testing.
- Keep It Simple: If you can't explain the workflow, it isn't done.
Maybe my friends would like to add some more suggestions?
