Agile Data Science 2.0

Abstract: Agile Data Science 2.0 (O'Reilly 2017) defines a methodology and a software stack with which to apply the methods. *The methodology* seeks to deliver data products in short sprints by going meta and putting the focus on the applied research process itself. *The stack* is but an example of one meeting the requirements that it be utterly scalable and utterly efficient in use by application developers as well as data engineers. This talk will cover the full lifecycle of large data application development and how to use lessons from agile software engineering to do data science.
