Statistics Without the Agonising Pain, and Statistics for Hackers

John Rauser, data scientist at Pinterest, has an excellent video called Statistics Without the Agonising Pain.  Less than 12 minutes, and it explains a useful stats term (statistical significance) to people who can code but don’t know stats.  It does this very well!

Another video along similar lines, by Jake Vanderplas.  It builds on the John Rauser one, and includes lots of excellent Dr Seuss illustrations and quotes.

Both were taken from a blog post by Julia Evans, where she collects together resources explaining stats to programmers.
