Last week I had the good fortune to attend O’Reilly’s Strata conference where I heard from a number of leaders in the industry on how they were tackling both the technical and non-technical challenges of working with data. While listening to some of the talks I decided to try my hand at capturing some sketch-notes and I wanted to share these for others to see. I’ll add to this post over the next few weeks as I finish tidying-up my notes.
Stories Beat Statistics - Brent Dykes
The first sketch-note is for Brent Dykes (@analyticshero) talk Stories Beat Statistics where he shared the idea that by combining data and visuals with a narrative we can more successfully deliver key messages and influence change.
Agile for Data Science Teams - Jennifer Prendki
The second sketch-note is for Jennifer Prendki’s (@jlprendki) talk Agile for Data Science Teams where she talked about how Figure Eight were applying agile practices in their data science teams. It was super useful to hear how other data teams are using Sprint and Kanban for different types of projects.
