St. Louis Fed FRED API

I just wanted to pass on a link that I intend to use. I read an article that stated there is a lack of data sets for people interested in becoming a data scientist to use. I found that strange given the large amounts of data available in the Economics field.

The St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, has the Federal Reserve Economic Data system or FRED. There are 212,000 time series from 62 sources. They also have an API, and a 3rd party Python wrapper.
