Background and Contributing

whyqd is open-source and we welcome your support. This is very early in the release process, so please have a look at the Roadmap, or simply let me know what you think, what works, what doesn’t.

Background

whyqd was created to serve a continuous data wrangling process, including collaboration on more complex messy sources, ensuring the integrity of the source data, and producing a complete audit trail from data imported to our database, back to source. You can see the product of that at Sqwyre.com.

All the code (so far) has been written by Gavin Chait with references in the code to snippets from elsewhere.

The ‘backronym’ for whyqd /wɪkɪd/ is Whythawk Quantitative Data, Whythawk is an open data science and open research technical consultancy.
