All the data you can eat

You could be using Javascript for data science. (But should you?)

Javascript has quietly been taking over the world, so why not data science? Italian researcher Cristiano Fontana takes us through a sample Node.JS app just to prove that it can be done, and it’s particularly interesting to me since I’ve been fiddling with this stuff quite heavily — particularly rendering graphs on Node.

For the machine learning pundits out there, TensorFlow isn’t the only library for JS — check some ML tools for Javascript. I can also recommend Udemy’s Machine Learning with Javascript course.

As to the question of whether it’s wise to use Javascript for data science: Probably not… but that’s not going to stop me.
