Ten years ago nobody knew, what data-scientists do and now they are everywhere. And they come and mess up your code-base with no regards for a coding style or DRY principle. They don’t understand why you need to refactor, if it already works. And when you ask, what data they need, they’ll tell you „all of them“.
