The Top 10 Data Science Links of 2017. [DSR #117]

It’s been a hell of a year in data. As promised, here are your top links of 2017, ranked by number of clicks.

As a group, you clearly care about the practical: almost every post focuses on a how-to. Apparently you like “thought leadership” content just about as much as I do.

Thanks for an amazing 2017; it’s been a privilege to be in your inbox every week. If you’d like to pay it forwards, please share this issue with friends and coworkers! 🙏

See you in 2018!
