From the ashes: How data corruption revitalized our project, Kendra Bouda

Under the worst of circumstances, data corruption may lead to irreparable loss. Though even if a backup is available, such disruption can easily set any project back.  Join speaker Kendra Bouda as she recounts her experiences with data corruption and how the misfortune of data loss actually revitalized her project. Kendra will relate how a variety of data-related hurdles shaped her work on the Clery Crime Data Visualization Project, shifted her perspective on access and reproducibility, and, ultimately, how data corruption transformed project goals.
