I look forward to talking about the theory and practice of agile data science. The theory is that all data science is iterative application development where we get “meta” and build an application describing the applied research process itself. The application component is a guide to practicing agile data science to develop a full-stack “big data” application using an example stack with some of the most popular and desirable tools: Kafka, Spark, Spark Streaming, MongoDB, Elasticsearch, Airflow, Python, Flask and d3.js. I look forward to an active, engaged conversation with data science and data engineering practitioners and fans.
