Join us for Hadley Wickham’s vision of Data Science as a field focusing on the corner that he’s most familiar: designing tools for Data Scientist-Programmers.In this talk Hadley will outline his vision of data science as a field focussing on the corner in which he’s most familiar: designing tools for data scientist-programmers. He’ll talk about why he believes programming is so important for data science why code is an excellent medium of computation and outline some of the challenges that visual tools face. Hadley will also talk about data science challenges where programming doesn’t help or feels excessively clumsy and a little about why he is a passionate believer in R.
