Preventing disaster with data testing: Real-life examples and best practices
Anna Lagutina


As data-driven applications become increasingly prevalent, it's important to ensure they meet software best practices and standards. With incorrect analysis, we can fail to understand data, accidentally introduce bugs, have mismatching test sets and real-life data, misinterpret our data analysis and who knows what else can go wrong?
