Attendance to this tutorial is open to both OSCON and OSCON Data attendees. You don’t need to sign up for this tutorial in advance, but please note it lasts all day. This tutorial takes place in the regular OSCON (Portland) side of the convention center.
Data Analysis is often wrapped in a bit of mystery, with specialized tools, fancy terminology, and difficult techniques. This tutorial takes a different stance: we will review a set of basic, almost trivial, method and techniques, which are nevertheless essential if you want to think about and understand data. Particular emphasis is placed on ways to gain insight through graphical methods.
Part 1: Basic Basics
Part 2: Advanced Basics
This is a talk on conceptual methods and techniques, which are independent of any particular software tool or application. For this reason, we will largely stay clear of tool-specific technical details.
After previous careers in physics and software development, Philipp K. Janert currently provides consulting services for data analysis, algorithm development, and mathematical modeling.
He is the author of two books on data analysis: “Data Analysis with Open Source Tools” (O’Reilly) and “Gnuplot in Action – Understanding Data with Graphs” (Manning Publications).
He holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Washington. Visit his company website at www.principal-value.com
