SCE_logoThis week I started a boot camp style corporate training gig over at Southern California Edison in Irwindale. The title of the 7 week course is “Introduction to R Programming,” although I’m teaching it like an intro to data science class. The contract was arranged through UC Irvine as part of their popular data science certificate program.

The SCE group attending the class is from a broad spectrum of SCE departments including IT, business intelligence, customer analytics, power supply, and business analysis. The participants see very capable and are anxious to move into the data science realm. I’m quite pleased to take some time off my busy project work schedule for a serious teaching assignment like this. Very rewarding!

Toyota_Financial_ServicesI just completed a short Boot-Camp style corporate training gig for Toyota Financial Services. The 3 full-day session was organized by UC Irvine Extension as part of their Data Science program. I had a blast with the Toyota group consisting of Big Data and BI managers, analysts, IT personnel, and programmers. It was a very insightful group with a sincere desire to learn R, data science and machine learning. I came away quite impressed with Toyota (too bad they’re moving to Texas).
