WORKSHOP: Data Science Survival Kit (I) - Philipp Burckhardt, Carnegie Mellon University & Athan Reines, Independent Software Engineer
One of the next frontiers for Node.js world domination is data science. Yet the field of data science can appear intractable and overwhelming, leaving newcomers at a loss for knowing where to begin. But once you learn basic principles, you will see many opportunities for applying data science techniques in your projects.

In this workshop, Athan Reines and Philipp Burckhardt will show you how to leverage Node.js for data science. We’ll run through a series of brief exercises, allowing you to get a hands-on introduction to analytics, machine learning, and exploratory data analysis and visualization.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a solid understanding of what kind of problems you can approach using data science techniques and you’ll have experience conducting a full analysis from start to finish.
