I have to say, I'm really excited about the great content being presented at this year's PASS Business Analytics Conference. The Program Team at PASS has outdone themselves this year to recharge and direct the content to include incredibly meaningful, useful and timely training to data professionals in all industries.
Take a look for yourself at some of the sessions which were presented during the BA Marathon recently. Go ahead, it's FREE!
Some of the most exciting news about the conference is the amazing line up of Speakers for both sessions and keynotes. The incredible Mico Yuk (author of Data Visualization for Dummies) will be featured as a keynote speaker on day two. Then, there's the likelihood of running into and having the opportunity to talk with data superstars such as Chandoo, MrExcel: Bill Jelen and Oz du Soleil from ExcelTV!
But wait, there's more than just Excel going on here. Want to learn more about R or Hadoop? Check out sessions with David Smith from Revolution Analytics, and Michelle Ufford from GoDaddy. Plus, so much more...
Mostly though, PASS events are a great place to network, meeting people who have similar work, and tackle similar problems. Having a low pressure environment where you can enjoy some time to just chat with one another (maybe even hang out in the evening for dinner!) and learn from each other is worth every moment away from the office. But don't just take my word for it. See what KDNuggets has to say about the BA Conference:
