Real World Data Science

Real World Data Science is a new data science content platform from the RSS. It is being built for data science students, practitioners, leaders and educators as a space to share, learn about and be inspired by real-world uses of data science.

Case studies of data science applications will be a core feature of the site, as will “explainers” of the ideas, tools, and methods that make data science projects possible. The site will also host exercises and other material to support the training and development of data science skills.

Real World Data Science is online at Follow us on GitHub, LinkedIn, Mastodon and Twitter.
