Big Data and Visualization with GitHub data for a school project


Hello cool people!

I have a project for school that requires me to pull in big data and create visuals out of it with plots (2D & 3D) with Wolfram Mathematica.

The big data needs to have multiple dimensions (i.e. x,y,z) that will help me construct more types of 3D plots. Now, I am thinking of analyzing repo creation data over time with a observation of other factors such as where these repos are getting created and what time of day there are being created.

Now, I am making this post to seek advice to see if this is the right area to poll everyone’s knowledge about GitHub API and the data it is able to provide. Please let me know if it is possible or if I should look elsewhere.
