It is well-known that being a data scientist equals to being a programmer, a data engineer, and a business analyst all in one. Although having various job responsibilities, all data scientists share one thing — WE CODE, just as developers do!
In fact, people (stakeholders) relate us more to programmers in the sense that we can magically solve data-related problems by sitting in front of a computer and typing on the keyboard, just as developers do programming-related problems!
What’s more important? Well, data scientists share a goofy sense of humor with developers as well, and life as data scientists contains funny yet true moments. I compiled some puns that we — data scientists/programmers— can definitely relate to.
