What is govcookiecutter?

This is a template for data science projects within the public sector. It is also designed to be a lightweight but robust way to maintain quality assurance standards in Agile and code-based projects.

About the event

In this presentation, we will give an overview of govcookiecutter and its origins, along with useful features such as best practice nudges, and automatically preventing secrets exposure.

We will give a live demonstration of how quick and easy it is to get your project started, as well as showing govcookiecutter in action on one of our own projects. We will also explain how to get it running on Windows, and share future plans for R support, before rounding out with a Q&A session.
