Data is the “New Oil” and the trade of Data Science is a very hot topic. With the cost of storage and compute resources dropping drastically, it is now aspirational to capture all manners of data that is generated from devices- be it mobile, wearables or sensors.

Software engineers who were in general involved with design and engineering of apps are increasing being thrust into the direction of data e.g. Instrumentation for data collection, building and testing predictive models and implementation of prediction.

This work shop is designed to introduce to the software engineers the field of Data Science. Additionally, bring awareness around software engineering and design aspects for implementing a data driven solution.

Workshop Objectives

The key objective is to ensure that upon completion the participants are clearly able to distinguish each component in the eco-system and decide for themselves how to leverage and benefit from Data Science.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Familiarize with the current progressions in Data and what it means for Software Engineers
  • Articulate interdependencies between Engineering and Data Science
  • Engineering design principles to make Data Science successful
  • Functional components in Advanced Analytics implementation
  • Key Data Science analytic methods and application opportunities

    Workshop Outline

    The following segments are designed to meet the above workshop objectives:


    Session I: Introducing the Ecosystem
