DevOps for Data Science

Author

Alex K Gold

Welcome!

This is the website for the book DevOps for Data Science, currently in draft form.

In this book, you’ll learn about DevOps conventions, tools, and practices that can be useful to you as a data scientist. You’ll also learn how to work better with the IT/Admin team at your organization, and even how to do a little server administration of your own if you’re pressed into service.

Software information and conventions

I used the knitr package [@xie2015] and the quarto package [@quarto] to compile my book.

Package names are in bold text (e.g., rmarkdown), and inline code and filenames are formatted in a typewriter font (e.g., knitr::knit('foo.Rmd')). Function names are followed by parentheses (e.g., bookdown::render_book()).
