We're pleased to report that our two-day series of workshops in Nov 2019, covering both Python and R, was a success. Our Python workshops proved to be particularly popular.
We started on 18 November with Machine Learning with Python, hosted jointly with Eliiza and delivered by a team of presenters from Eliiza led by Patrick Robotham. This was the first time we have offered these workshops and they proved to be popular, with over 30 attendees. For those who missed out, don't worry, we plan to run them again next year. There was a lot of interest particularly in image classification techniques, for which we plan to develop some more material for next time.
We continued on 19 November with a repeat of our R skills workshops, hosted jointly with MIG. This year we were joined by Emi Tanaka from Sydney who delivered the R Markdown workshop, while Damjan Vukcevic presented on Building R packages. We had almost 20 attendees for each one and many requests for more workshops, both at a more introductory as well as a more advanced level.
