Increasingly, data analysts are filling their need for powerful tools by turning to products and services designed for IT professionals. Whether they need access to the cloud to crush large data sets, or flexible version control to manage complicated projects, analysts are forced to waste time struggling with tools that are difficult to setup and configure for anyone who isn't an engineer. That's where Domino comes in: Domino is a platform for data scientists working in R, Python and Matlab who want powerful tools that "just work" without any setup. Domino lets you run your analysis in cloud without changing your code; provides automatic version control for your data, code, and results; and facilitates collaboration on your projects. In this talk, Matthew will demo Domino and talk about how other data journalists are using it in their day-to-day work.
This session is good for: People who have a basic understanding of data analysis in R, Python or Matlab and want better tools for doing their work.
