Contemporary Analysis’ data science training program, the ODSA, continues its data science training classes with their next class, Data Manipulation and Management, beginning August 15th. This class teaches a student how to store and transform data specifically to be used in modeling. It will also teach database design, SQL queries, different schemas, data cleaning techniques, and data appending. The class will also introduce a tool called Dataiku--a data platforming tool used for easier data engineering and visual/drag and drop data science.
