DAT213 - Analyzing Big Data with Microsoft R Server

This course teaches exploratory data analysis skills using the Microsoft R Server implementation known as RevoScaleR. This product is in most ways functionally equivalent to the open source CRAN-R. RevoScaleR offers three significant benefits over its open source brother: the ability to run analyses in parallel across different servers, the ability to "chunk" data for evaluation and bypass the in-memory limitation of R, and the ability to read more natively from data sources like SQL Server, Hadoop, and Spark.

DAT101 - Data Science Orientation

"Data Science Orientation" is the first class in the Microsoft Professional Program (MPP) for Data Sciences. This class is a warm-up exercise for the larger program. It outlines the 10-part certificate process and introduces you to five current data scientists who answer questions about their career. Are you wondering what skills and personality traits will help you succeed as a data scientist? The professional interviews offer practical insight on those topics.

DAT209 - Programming with R for Data Science

Programming R for Data Science is taught by Anders Stockmarr (on the faculty of Technical University of Denmark.) For US audiences, his accent requires some getting used to. He places emphasis on unexpected syllables and has a unique way of pronouncing many things. I found it helpful to use headphones and to adjust the playback speed of the recordings. It is worth making the effort to understand Dr.

DAT203 - Data Science Essentials

Data Science Essentials (DAT203) marks the point where we have enough foundation that we can start forming a bigger picture of data science. To that goal, the course provides this definition:

Data Science is the exploration and quantitative analysis of all available structured and unstructured data to develop understanding, extract knowledge, and formulate actionable results.
