What we have explored and executed in 2017
Data Science On-Ramp Short Course
This year, we’re fortunate to co-organize a 7-weeks short course with HELP University on data science. We’ve accepted over 24 students from various industries. Adax Asia financially supported the course, and iprice group donated the datasets used for the 2-days group data challenges. In addition to this, we’ve welcomed over 12 teaching instructors that provided personalised learning experiences on various data science topics.

Fast Business Insights with Data
We have organised 4-days workshop at MaGIC on how to use datasets for the benefits of business’s goals. The workshop also includes effective ways of data visualisations, analysing and web scraping. Despite having a shorter workshops duration, our teaching instructors provided insightful teaching materials and hands-on exercises that allow students to grasp the conceptual aspects balanced with technicality.

Global Entrepreneurship Community Summit
We have organised a workshop at #GECommunity2017 under Education Lab. The workshop was about the concept of personalised learning, ways on how we applied the concept in our recent short course and other educational workshops such as Fast Business Insights with Data, and Rising Tide. From the workshop, we also gained a welcoming interest for data science courses. Despite being scheduled for the last workshop of the day, we thank individuals who came by and stuck with us until our workshop ends.

What we look forward to in 2018
We are currently planning few up-coming advanced classes in 2018. The classes open for 15 persons per class only and welcome anyone who is interested in participating. In our classes, we will have experienced instructors that will provide particular discipline where skills are being developed, utilised and distributed. In addition to this, our instructors will dive into topics that rarely covered in many data sciences workshops and short courses. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and MailChimp newsletter for more updates about our classes.
Data stories book
Apart from advanced classes, we are also planning to curate and publish a regional data stories book in 2018. In this book, we will compile 12 compelling stories written by data practitioners around Southeast Asia with insightful data visualisation, exploration and analysis. Call for writers are still open until January 17, 2018. Read more about the background of the book and the application process here: http://bit.ly/DataStoriesDetails
Rising Tide is a project for companies with cultures of openness, innovation and knowledge-sharing. From this project, companies will be able to develop in-house talent, reduce recruitment costs, build a culture of continuous learning to add value to business outcomes, adopt best practices from market leaders across industry sectors, and build a reputation as a preferred employer in the tech community. We are currently exploring potential prospects who would be interested in working together with us on this project.
