This year, 2018, is the year that the number of data scientists doing Python equals the number of web developers doing Python. That's why I've invited Jonathon Morgan to join me to count down the top 10 stories in the data science space.

You'll find many accessible and interesting stories mixed in with a bunch of laughs. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
