Free Introduction to Data Analytics Workshop for Women – Hong Kong
21 March 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm HKTFree
She Loves Data: Introduction to Data Analytics workshop in Hong Kong! This is our signature workshop, an introduction to the logical thinking behind data analytics and business intelligence. Meet fellow women interested in data and have fun learning!
The day provides an overview of data analytics infrastructure and best practices through a hands-on case study. Participants will get to build their own analytics solution based on real-world data. The course aspires to light a spark of curiosity that could end up leading to a career with endless opportunities, where the sky is the limit. No prior knowledge of analytics or programming skills is needed, we’ll start with the foundations. And you’re not alone – our data analytics professionals will help you begin your journey!
We run this workshop, and advanced follow up sessions, on a regular basis in different locations across Asia. We want to support women to enter the field of data analytics, so this workshop is intended primarily for women. If you have any questions please contact [email protected] directly.
