Typically, though, a background in working with large data sets in a research setting is advantageous. This is why you may be mingling with a former physicist or immunologist at the next data hackathon...

A while ago I wrote this post with some R code to visualize the updating of a beta distribution as the outcome of Bernoulli trials are observed. The code provided a single plot of this process, with all the curves overlayed on top of one another. Then John Myles White (co-author of Machine Learning for
