"Een training voor deelnemers met uiteenlopende ervaring in data science is nooit makkelijk, maar voor Jeroen geen probleem. Na een duidelijke uitleg vooral zelf aan de slag met voor ieder een passende uitdaging. Absolute aanrader!" - 19-11-2020 08:12

Description

Introduction

Ask a dozen people what "data science" means, and you get back thirteen different answers. This vagueness is unfortunately accompanied with a lot of hype and misaligned expectations. In this inspiration session, we aim to mitigate this by taking a good look under the hood of data science.

In three hours, we not only explain in clear terms what data science entails, but we also let participants experience what a typical data scientist does by working through a practical use case using a real-world dataset and a programming language such as Python or R. This session is meant for everybody who wants to know what data science is (and isn't) about. Even when you'll never intend to wo…

Introduction

Ask a dozen people what "data science" means, and you get back thirteen different answers. This vagueness is unfortunately accompanied with a lot of hype and misaligned expectations. In this inspiration session, we aim to mitigate this by taking a good look under the hood of data science.

In three hours, we not only explain in clear terms what data science entails, but we also let participants experience what a typical data scientist does by working through a practical use case using a real-world dataset and a programming language such as Python or R. This session is meant for everybody who wants to know what data science is (and isn't) about. Even when you'll never intend to work with data yourself, it can be eye-opening to have experienced it. Caution: there's a chance you'll want to learn more afterwards!

Testimonials

"Data Science Workshops came to our company to help us understand big data and the tools around it. They are clearly experts in this field and we enjoyed the course, learnt a lot and one day, when we have more big data, we hope to team up again. The trainer was personable, capable, and an expert. I couldn't recommend them more highly."

--Jamie Dobson, CEO, Container Solutions

"De workshop was geweldig. Met een laag instapniveau kregen we eerst een kijkje in de keuken. Maar al snel was het hands-on! Helemaal fantastisch was te zien hoe we met eigen data aan de slag gingen en hoe Jeroen 'as we speak' op vragen uit de zaal met tooling verbanden liet zien die we vermoeden, maar nooit bewezen hadden gezien. Een absolute aanrader. " - 03-11-2020 15:30

"Data Science Workshops organised the Data Science NL Meetup (a meetup for data aficionados) at our offices in Amsterdam. They found inspiring speakers, arranged recording and live broadcasting on a data science podcast, and—despite a heat wave outside—packed the room with an engaged audience! We only had to make sure we had plenty of pizza and cold drinks. Both the meetup and the networking truly brought the data science community closer together." - 02-11-2020 13:55
