We want to wrap up by thinking about what just happened and what we hope for you going forward.
The two main goals of this book were to communicate what it’s like to be a data scientist and to teach you how to do some of what a data scientist does.
We’d like to think we accomplished both of these goals.
The various contributors for the chapters brought multiple first-hand accounts of what it’s like to be a data scientist, which addressed the first goal. As for the second goal, we are proud of the breadth of topics we’ve covered, even if we haven’t been able to be as thorough as we’d like to be.
It’s possible one could do better than we have, so the next sidebar gives you something to think about.
