/courses/r_tidyverse/
Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0000/courses/r_tidyverse/R is a free statistical software package that has grown in popularity over the years. It was primarily used by statisticians and enthusiasts as the entry level was high. The tidyverse approach has made R accessible to a wider audience interested in processing, analysing and communicating their own data.
Course Summary This two day course will give an overview of tidyverse thinking and programming. Participants will learn how to import, tidy and transform data to produce elegant graphs and summary statistics.Survival Analysis

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0000/courses/trustworthy_data_science/Course Summary Data Science is being used, both in the public and private sectors, to answer questions that lead to decisions in one way or another. Data scientists are increasingly facing scrutiny about what they have done and why. This course will look into the processes to understand where trust is built and lost which in turn will be the building blocks of the concept of “Trustworthy Data Science”.Understanding Statistics in Clinical Trials
/courses/clinical_trial_statistics/
Wed, 27 Sep 2017 00:00:00 +0000/courses/clinical_trial_statistics/Course Summary Statistics are an essential part of clinical trials that many non-statisticians have to work with. This includes the planning and design of a study, data collection, statistical analyses, statistical reporting and the communications of the results. This course will focus on the key concepts and avoid algebra as far as possible.
Target audience Non-statisticians who works with clinical trials, for example, Clinicians, Clinical Trial Managers (CTMs) Clinical Research Associates (CRAs), Data Management Global Medical Affairs professional Site personnel Course Outline The following topics will be covered:Writing Real-life Motivated R Guides

Recently I posted1 a “Getting Start in R” guide which starts by explaining some key concepts in R and then demonstrates the tidyverse2 using a real-life dataset. Shortly after this, Dirk Eddelbuettel3 posted an equivalent “Tinyverse Edition”4 using the data.table5 package. It was much more than I had expected as I thought that I was starting a one person project writing guides for a niche audience, and for my training courses and workshops.Boas Apresentações Aumentam a Sua Visibilidade

Sempre que sou convidado a fazer uma apresentação, os meus nervos tomam imediatamente as rédeas até a apresentação propriamente dita terminar. Atingem o seu máximo no momento em que dizem o meu nome e durante os primeiros minutos da apresentação. O quê? Eu? Agora? Aquela gente toda A OLHAR PARA MIM! OK, não tropeces, não falhes a introdução, enganei-me, mas ainda aqui estou…
As pessoas normalmente dizem-me que “não pareces nervoso”.Great Presentations Raise Your Profile

Whenever I’m invited to present, my nerves immediately take over until the actual presentation is finished. They peak when I’m being introduced and during the first few minutes of the presentation. What? Me? Now? All those people LOOKING AT ME! OK, don’t trip, don’t mess up the opening, I got it wrong, but I’m still going, …
People often tell me that “you don’t look nervous”. Yes, that’s true, as I try very hard to hide it, but people who know me can spot my ticks.Presentation Skills for Data Scientists
