🎉 🥳🥂 Data Science Roundup Top 20 Posts of 2019 [DSR #211]

Well that’s a wrap! Another fun year curating the Data Science Roundup. As always, thanks for welcoming me into your inbox every weekend, it’s a real privilege and one I do not take lightly.

Looking back on 2019, the content being produced by the data community continues to be more mature and thoughtful than ever. Your favorite links of the year weren’t listicles and simplistic how-to content, they were thought-provoking articles by some of the smartest minds in the space. I’m glad that’s what you’re interested in, because it’s what I’m interested in (and seeking out!) as well.

Happy New Year and best wishes in 2020!
