pp_troy_burmeister_smpp_claire_gilbert_smSenior Statistical Analysts Claire Gilbert and Troy Burmeister present an “encore” of “Open Up the Open Source Mindset: Tapping into the Data Scientist’s Toolbox to Solve Research Challenges” at ESOMAR Summer Academy. This hands-on tutorial will prime you on the macro forces at play in the world of open source and give you the tools to apply your learnings. Get inspired, hear firsthand accounts and then jump right into a four-phase practicum to embrace foundational open source tools to solve traditional research challenges in real-time.

Bring your laptops and be ready to learn how to 1) install R and Python and read in data; 2) clean and restructure the data with Python; 3) leverage R to mine the data for insights; 4) visualize data using these tools.

Coming out of this immersive all-day session (group exercises, breakouts, real-world examples), you will gain confidence in accessing and applying open source tools to your own data-driven challenges. Specifically, you will have the step-by-step instructions and code needed to install and begin working in essential open source languages, as well as the structure of code required to perform standard data cleaning and analysis. Throughout the day, we will pepper in examples of the advantages of open source in our ongoing work to underscore the impact of these tools in an industry that has long relied on proprietary software and technologies.

Opening up the open source mindset in your organization will encourage innovation, collaboration and efficiencies, and arm you with the contagious spirit necessary to remain relevant in a changing industry. Click here to register today!
