Data Scientist? Programmer? Are They Mutually Exclusive?

This Domino Data Science Field Note blog post provides highlights of Hadley Wickham s ACM Chicago talk, You Cant Do Data Science in a GUI . In his talk, Wickham advocates that, unlike a GUI, using code provides reproducibility, data provenance, and the ability to track changes so that data scientists have the ability to see how the data analysis has evolved. As the creator of ggplot2 , it is not a surprise that Wickham also advocates the use of visualizations and models together to help data scientists find the real signals within their data.
