Data Science Articles – Friday Favorites
The AI Hierarchy of Needs – Monica Rogati wrote this approachable, insightful article nearly three years ago and it feels like it hasn’t aged one bit. It lays out a helpful guide to the different stages of data work. I highly recommend checking it out, or re-reading it if you’ve already read it.
How to Add Dotted Lines to Line Graphs in Microsoft Excel – A step-by-step guide to add flair to your graphs to better show placeholder data. Ann has been a constant inspiration for my data visualization work over the years.

Other Links I Liked – Friday Favorites
Scientists discover a new snake and name it after Salazar Slytherin – This feels like the perfect article to read during COVID-19 for a Harry Potter fan. My favorite line in the article is: Unfortunately, a spokesperson for Slytherin was not available for comment. That’s quality journalism!
Colorado Topography – A neat and pretty way to layout the topography of Colorado using lines and colors! Definitely a cool way and something I hope to see replicated for other areas of the world!
Videos I Enjoyed – Friday Favorites
