Introduction to Predictive Analytics

Traditional data analysis is about describing the data we have. Some more advanced models are used to explain why we get what we see. However, with advances in technology and statistical theory, most companies now employ (or can employ) a new statistical paradigm: predictive analytics: instead of finding characteristics of customers, predictive models can predict which one is likely to leave, or which lead is most likely to convert.

This change in paradigm benefits decision makers and managers as it provides more precise insights that lead to focused and valuable actions. But it also requires new statistical capabilities. It turns out that the best explanatory models are not always the best predictive models, and analysts now need to develop, evaluate and interpret their models differently.

In this workshop we will get an overview of the world of predictive models and analytics, enter into this new “mindset”, and learn the basic considerations and evaluation techniques. In a “hands on” manner we will learn to classify, estimate, cluster and predict outcomes in real world settings, using the R statistical environment.

The workshop is modular and built as a mix of interactive demonstrations of key topics, in-class exercises based on real business settings and “open audience consultations” in which participants bring their own data and receive advice on how to accomplish their goal. The typical workshop takes 3-4 full days, and specific topics can be tailored to the needs and background of participants. Some background in using R is required.

Introduction to R

R is probably the best environment for data analysis, and is the choice of many data scientists and business analysts. This 3 day workshop will introduce R to these audiences and provide the basic skills needed for conducting data analysis projects independently in R. The workshop adopts a hands-on, interactive approach.

It is comprised of a few “interactive demonstration” modules that introduce key concepts. In these modules we follow a well documented R script, occasionally deviating from it to answer questions and deepen our understanding of the material presented. Interspersed between these demonstrations are in-class exercises in which participants have the opportunity to solve real (sometimes a bit simplified) business cases, using R by themselves. Finally there is always room for participants to bring their own data to the class, and discuss how to perform their task in R.

This modular structure enables to cater for the specific needs of participants and their organization. The typical workshop takes a minimum of 2 full days (2×8 hours), but 3 are advised. More “open audience” consultation time can be added as well as more modules to cover additional topics and statistical methods.

Developing Data Web-Apps with R-Shiny

Say good bye to the traditional tables and graph reports on printed paper or excel sheets. Today’s way of communicating the outcomes of an analytics project is a data application – an application that dynamically and interactively presents various aspects of the data, and highlights key insights. It allows the end user – typically managers – to quickly go through results, to browse through various graphics, dynamically creating tables and visualizations to answer questions as they arise, and create predictions based on new data.

The shiny package of R is a true innovation in this aspect of the analysis. It allows analysts to easily create reactive and interactive websites, display interactive graphs and much more – all this without the need to deal with HTML, JavaScript and other web technologies. All you need is to know R, and R will automatically generate those scripts and run your application on a server so that everybody can use it using a simple browser over the internet. This is a great way to create dashboards and reports, present interactive and complex visualizations and much more.

In the workshop we will learn how to build such web applications from scratch. We’ll learn how to develop a great UI with R, and how to fill it with content dynamically. We will discuss different aspects of reactivity, learn how to create interactive graphics and much more. This is a hands-on workshop and we will actually develop a few data oriented websites.

AWS DevOps with Python and boto3

Clean Code

Most of the code we write will accompany us for years. And everything we write for the first time is a draft. If that’s the case, why not make it better? Make the code clean for our future selves to fix bugs and add features without slowing down, or fearing touching it?

Clean code is something that is hard to describe, but there are effective ways to achieve it. In this workshop, we’re going to discuss and practice these methods.
