Ploomber: Open-Source Tools for Maintainable and Production-Ready Data Science

Jupyter notebooks are a prevalent tool for Data Science work; however, they can get out of control quickly, making them hard to maintain, collaborate, and deploy. Ploomber is an ecosystem of open-source tools that brings software engineering best practices to the Jupyter world to create more robust projects. This talk will describe the project's motivations and demonstrate how it is helping data teams move faster and reliably.
