This post is part of a series of posts and testimonies featuring data science students from the Data Science Immersive 12 Weeks, Full-Time Career Accelerator in Washington, DC offered by the educational company General Assembly. Students share what they've learned, what they wished to accomplish and what they are doing next. This series also profiles the winners of a Shout! and General Assembly Data Science Immersive Accelerator competition for best data journalism.
Earlier this month, Shout! joined forces with General Assembly's Data Science program to "slice and dice" the data behind President Trump's first 100 days in office.
Congratulations to all teams who worked on this data-journalism for public good competition!
General Assembly's talented data science students were asked to identify "data-friendly" issues covered by President Trump's 100 days. From animal rights to immigration issues to the digital engagement of our fellow citizens with the White House, they indeed helped us better assess the first 100 days of Donald Trump as President.
The Data Science Immersive Class of May 2017's first prize goes to Brian Austin for the broad appeal and articulate presentation of his analysis on the Whitehouse.gov site, which, Brian shows, is much less popular after 100 days of Trump. Read on!

Thank you to students and faculty over at General Assembly for making this competition happen!
Please stay tuned for the next data-journalism competition, which will be forthcoming soon.
