As part of my "Data Science Demystified" series, I had the opportunity to interview Data Science consultant and Major Domo practitioner John "Doc" Stevens from Crystal Ballers about the Domo Data Science Toolkit.
These tools include PyDomo & DomoR libraries for local development, Magic ETL tiles, and a Domo Juypter Notebook integration. Because each tool has distinct strengths and weaknesses, they fit into different parts of your data pipeline and data science project roll out.
In this video, we review each feature as well as make recommendations on how and when to use each tool as part of your pipeline.
