The pain of managing a Data Science project

Something has been bothering me for a while: Reproducibility and data tracking in data science projects. I have read about some technologies but had never really tried any of them out until recently when I couldn’t stand this feeling of losing track of my analyses anymore. At some point, I decided to give DVC a try after some friends, mostly Flávio Clésio, suggested it to me. In this post, I will talk about Git, DVC, R, RMarkdown and Packrat, everything I think you may need to manage your Data Science project, but the focus is definitely on DVC.
