Resources for Early Career Data Managers

27 Sep 2017

Hello everyone,

How would you like a repository of resources that could be useful to early career data managers? It would be an immense help for us and for those who will follow. The question is in what format it should exist. A sort of discussion forum would be nice, or a wiki. This is what the IG chapter also calls for. I don't know if a discussion forum is possible as a sub-page of the IG or in where it will exist. I tried creating a wiki, but as I don't know what parent page to enter, I'm posting the content here. Perhaps some of you know what could even be better. Here is the skeleton of the wiki article, just as a suggestion. I apologize that the formatting was lost.

The following are some resources for early career data managers.
