This hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data. The workshop is for anyone who has data they want to analyze, and no prior computational experience is required.
This two-day workshop will provide the following lessons as an introduction to skills that are broadly applicable as all fields become data-driven:
- Data organization and spreadsheets
Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring their own laptops to work on.
This workshop was planned to correspond with the Illinois Data Science Initiative’s 2nd Annual Data Science Day.
