Diary of a Data Scientist at Booking.com


Great behind-the-scenes look at a sophisticated data org:

Booking.com has 120+ data scientists and the community is growing bigger every day. Every one of us has a very different profile, background and working preference. For some, it’s their first job after PhD, whereas others come with a lot of work experience; some are Bayesian, some are Frequentist; some like R, others prefer Python; some strongly vouch for out-of-core learning (Vowpal Wabbit), while others prefer distributed computing using Spark and H2O. This diversity allows for continuous growth and learning from each other.
