Sophisticated analytical organizations are learning they can improve collaboration and accelerate analysis by applying best practices from scientific research and software engineering teams. This talk will describe these best practices and their benefits, specifically reproducibility, collaboration, and reusability. We’ll describe how to address the unique challenges of applying these practices to analytical work—for example, the need to track data and results, not just code — both at the level of general principles as well some specific techniques.
