Software Engineering for the Data Scientist


 
I came up as a software developer and only recently have I gotten into data science. Software engineering is in my bones, but for many of my colleagues, software engineering is a bit of a mystery.  That’s a problem because it affects productivity.  Data scientists need software engineering skill — just not all the skills a professional software engineer needs.  So what are the essential software engineering practices needed in data science?
 
In this #SpeedIdeation I’m calling on all software engineers, hackers, and data scientists to brainstorm on the best practices needed to write solid code in data science.
