Test-driven data analysis
Wednesday 2 November 2016 at 15.00, JCMB 5215

Abstract

Test-driven data analysis (TDDA) seeks to take some of the ideas and practices from test-driven development and apply them, with appropriate modifications, to avoid some of the common pitfalls in data analysis. While some of the ideas carry over straightforwardly, both the way data analysis is typically developed and the nature of data analysis tasks mean that mainstream TDD ideas need to be modified and extended to be fully effective in the context of data analysis.

This talk will compare and contrast mainstream TDD and TDDA, and talk about the challenges and ideas for developing further this important new area.
