About the Book

What is life like as a data scientist? In academia? In industry? What is the role of automation in data science? What is evidence-based data analysis? And what is RCatLadies?

These questions, and more, are discussed in Conversations on Data Science by Roger Peng and Hilary Parker, co-hosts of the popular Not So Standard Deviations podcast. This book collects many of their discussions from the podcast and distills them into a readable format. The conversational style of Roger and Hilary gives readers a behind-the-scenes look into how data science is done in real life. As new episodes of the podcast are created, this book is updated to add new topics of discussion. Readers of the book are entitled to free updates in the future as the book evolves.

Versions are available in PDF, ePub, and MOBI, and the book can be read through the Leanpub App.
