@zackshapiro = D Well, I believe that in real life I do not really look like a drunkard :) But I'm glad that you like these pictures ;)

I love tools like this. I also really want to recommend the "Data Science" specialization on Coursera. I have learned a ton about R

@EAWharton Eddie, thanks for comment! For R learning I can advise datacamp.com. And of course I hope that you will stay with datamonkey :)

I've been looking for something like this for awhile. I want everyone on my team to know how to work with SQL not relying on devs to build dashboards (or off the shelf tools). I never really found a great tool to teach them. This looks like it might be it.

@adamslieb Hello, Adam! First of all: thanks for your review. I hope that our service can be helpful + soon we gonna add more content and probably you will find the well fit courses (for you and your team)!

Hi @ilyaparshin, started going through the SQL lessons to brush up. Very nice! Hope more advanced lessons and more practice exercises are added soon. One thing that was easy to spot was the non-native English. It's fine, so many of us are non-natives. I thought it would be nice to list a few suggested corrections in a Google Doc, and I did so here: https://docs.google.com/document... I set the permissions such that you can edit in place, copy, etc. These are just some of the most immediate things that caught my eyes. Then I grew a bit tired from all the copy-pasting and thought to myself - everybody here seems so fond of what you're doing - if you publish all the text in DM in a collaborative document, I'm sure the community would be happy to help and get everything proofread quite quickly. What do you think ? Good luck!

@alonnir Wow! Thank you so much for such a great help! This is really the great act of kindness. I can't thank you enough ... This is a cool idea about the "community text correction" :) And we will think how to integrate such idea to our UI. If you have any idea, feedback or you come up with idea how we can thank you - just write me via twitter, email (mail@datamonkey.pro, ilya@datamonkey.pro), or skype (ilyaparshin). Many thanks!

@ilyaparshin Happy to help and want to see you succeed :) another option I thought about was maybe to break the text to chunks and put them up on Mechanical Turk for the turkers to proofread. I did it once and was blown away by the results. Quality feedback, in no time, and for just a few bucks. Just followed you on twitter. Lots of luck man!

This is great. The need to manipulate and analyze data is important to all functions. Glad to see a solid tool to learn these skills with
