Got questions about data that you're too embarrassed to ask? Find yourself wondering what a word you're seeing a lot in the data reports you're getting actually means? We've got you.
The Data Amnesty Salon is back.
We'll be live on Tuesday, February 11th 11am Eastern Time.
This month we have a much-improved registration process. (Still free, of course, but now you'll get reminders!)
Submit an anonymous question here.
When I was a kid, one of the most important dates circled on my calendar was Amnesty Day at my local library. On these days, I could return my mountain of overdue books and have the late fees forgiven. Data Science needs a place to offer the same opportunity to learn from our mistakes without penalties or judgement.
The We All Count Data Amnesty Salons are a place to share anonymous stories about what went wrong in your data projects, alert people to mistakes you’ve made in the past, and ask questions you might be embarrassed about. They are a judgement-free zone where we can all improve together.
Hosted by Heather Krause, the Salons are live-streamed and you can submit stories and questions in advance via our anonymous link (above) or by emailing Heather; or you can join the live discussion on the day! Unless your mistake is, like, career-endingly bad, in which case we DEFINITELY want to hear it, but I’d submit it anonymously. The best (and by best we mean worst) data gaff of each salon goes in the Data Amnesty Hall of Fame – a place to celebrate the difficulty and frequent absurdity of the world of Data Science. It’s part of our commitment to Demystify, Democratize and Demonstrate Data for Equity.
