Data Management

If analyzing data is half the battle, and getting it is the other half, then managing it once you have it is the third half. These two episodes look at a few rules for doing that, and at one tool that can be used to help.

  • Store data in a hierarchy of folders and files with regular names that can easily be pattern-matched.
  • Use README files to store metadata.
  • Have the computer track the programs used to process data.
