Some questions come up again and again in relation to data industries. Questions like:
Should I learn R or Python?
How reproducible should my work be? What steps should I take to make it so?
Does SQL have a place in Data Science?
How much of your work involves "Big Data"?
As these questions come up so frequently, the UK Data Service is maintaining a Data FAQs resource where interested people can ask such questions or peruse previously asked questions to find carefully curated answers.
To kick-start this resource, PyDataMCR is collaborating with the UK Data Service to host a panel of experts. They will discuss these prompts, and others submitted prior to the panel event, in order to crowd-source some detailed answers.
