It was a pretty great year for data science! As is quickly becoming the best holiday tradition on the internet, we teamed up with Michael Kennedy from the fantastic Talk Python to Me podcast for our annual list of the year’s top data science news and developments. So grab some spiked egg nog, manischewitz sangria, or maybe a piping hot green tea, settle in, and get ready for the year ahead by remembering 2016 - the biggest gut punch of the 21st century, and a pretty good time for data nerds!

Huge thanks to Michael for putting this together!
