Summary:
Data science teams often borrow best practices from software development, but since the product of a data science project is insight, not code, software development workflows are not a perfect fit. How can data scientists create workflows tailored to their needs? Through interviews with several data-driven organizations, this practical report reveals how data science teams are improving the way they define, enforce, and automate a development workflow. Data science workflows differ from team to team because their tasks, goals, and skills vary so much. In this report, author Ciara Byrne talked to teams from BinaryEdge, Airbnb, GitHub, Scotiabank, Fast Forward Labs, Datascope, and others about their approaches to the data science process, including their procedures for: Defining team structure and roles Asking interesting questions Examining previous work Collecting, exploring, and modeling data Testing, documenting, and deploying code to production Communicating the results With this report, you’ll also examine a complete data science workflow developed by the team from Swiss cybersecurity firm BinaryEdge that includes steps for preliminary data analysis, exploratory data analysis, knowledge discovery, and visualization.
