Today’s Datanauts episode is all about data and data models, and why they matter. Deciding how to model your data ahead of time can pay off down the road. It helps ensure that the people who are using the data get what they need from it, and can reduce technical debt.
Our guest is data expert Karen Lopez, senior project manager and architect at InfoAdvisors. She and the Datanauts discuss various definitions of data models, CAP Theorem and the pros and cons of various database types, and database architectures.
She also discusses her role in the NASA Datanauts program, a community of data scientists and advocates who work with NASA’s open data and promote data science education.
