My little analytics training startup, Principal Analytics Prep, is proud to sponsor the next meeting of the Data Visualization New York Meetup, organized by the indefatigable Naomi Robbins. The Meetup, to be held on November 26, 2018 (Monday), headlines NYU professor, Kristen Sosulski, who will discuss the “business case for data visualization”. Click here to register.
Naomi is a long-time friend. I reviewed and recommended her book on Creating More Effective Data Graphics in 2008. This is still a useful reference to some key concepts, presented in a clean, easily digestible format.
The keynote speaker, Kristen, has just published Data Visualization Made Simple, described as a “top book for computer science students.” I am very much looking forward to her talk because the subject speaks to the core of the mission of Principal Analytics Prep: placing data science & analytics in the context of the entire enterprise.
That’s why my bootcamp and training programs emphasize the Three Pillars: computing, statistics, and business. Our instructors are practitioners with 10 to 30 years of learning from real-world implementation of models and systems used by forward-thinking, data-driven organizations.
The Spring 2019 cohort of our Certified Data Specialist bootcamp is open for applications. If you're looking to transition your career into data science and advanced analytics, check us out. Here are some of the great things our alums have said about the program. Take advantage of the early admit deadline by December 10, 2018. Click here for more information.
I'm excited to hear what Kristen has to say about using data visualization in the business world. Kristen's website is here. She teaches at NYU's Stern School of Business, and describes herself as a computer scientist. Here's the link to the Amazon page. Unfortunately the page is not very informative about the book's content. The table of contents is minimalist ("The Design", "The Audience", etc.). I will report back on what she spoke about after the Meetup.
