PyDataMCR - Data FAQs with the UK Data Service

27 April 2021
Online, 18.00 - 19.30 BST

Some questions come up again and again in relation to data industries. Questions like:

  • 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.
