I am currently working on Next Side Project (still under construction 🚧) to encourage Data Science students or enthusiasts to find inspiration and share their side projects with others' in the community.
I've made a poll recently on LinkedIn and found that 7 out of 10 people find it difficult to get the next idea for their Data Science side project. They randomly pick a dataset from Kaggle and start working on it without any clear path. I myself have faced this problem and I thought I could solve this through no-code and building in public. I've started a new newsletter on substack for the same: Next Side Project - Newsletter. If you're an aspiring Data Science student, consider subscribing to it.
I was wondering if you could help me by giving your opinion regarding this idea. What do you think of it? How can I scale it so it reaches more people? Are there any forums or communities I can join so that I can collaborate with more and help the growing community?
Is there any way I can monetize this to support myself in the process? (I'm aiming to make it free as much as possible but I want something to keep me motivated in the long run)
Please let me know your thoughts & ideas. Thanks in advance. :)
