JSJ 447: Using Javascript for Data Analysis and Data Science with Daniel Lathrop

Our guest is Daniel Lathrop, a freelance investigative data journalist and educator, and formerly a newspaper reporter and Professor of Journalism and Media informatics at the University of Iowa. On this show, Daniel describes how JavaScript is a great choice for doing data analysis and data science, potentially even more so than other languages which are often used for this purpose, such as Python and R. Daniel also provides information about lots of useful tools and techniques to use in this context.
