3. Hard to work with.
How to deal with underperformers? This is a question to which most developers need the answer.

This article deals with the definition of what behavioral data exactly is, as well as with the purposes of its usage and the people who should use behavioral data.

8. Big Book of R
I’ve mentioned R several times before as it’s an impressive language for data manipulation and statistical analysis, but few people tend to pick it up and make an effort to learn as it has quite a steep learning curve.
Oscar Baruffa has an excellent site the “Big Book of R” which has so many R-related resources it’s hard to describe — everything from Data Science through Finance to GeoSpatial analysis. I’m sure you’ll find something here to aid you on your R journey. Written and published by Oscar Baruffa and editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Read the book here:
9. GeostatsGuy Lectures
Similarly, I can also recommend the YouTube channel of Michael Pyrcz, “GeostatsGuy Lectures”, which covers not only general Data Science topics but also Machine Learning and Modelling, all primarily using the Python language for various computational tasks. It’s a place I head to from time to time as I’m no Python expert but it’s good to know what the other people are up to! Editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Visit the YouTube channel here:
10. 5 Dashboard Design Best Practices
If you’re like me and you move around and process a lot of data in your day job then you’re most likely interested in dashboards — either for monitoring, catching anomalies, and triggering alerts, or simply for giving an overview to a non-technical user. I use InfluxDB a lot, and often Grafana, and find Influx Data’s resources extremely useful. Their technical marketing writer Charles Mahler has an excellent overview of what you should be looking to portray and how you should portray it for maximum effect in a dashboard. Written by Charles Mahler on The New Stack and editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Read the article here:
