We think that your employees would benefit from easy access to our workshops. On this page we give ten reasons that briefly explain who we are, what we have to offer, and how our catalogue could be integrated into your LMS. You can leave your details at the bottom of this page in case you have any questions or would like to discuss this further.
1. Our company
Our company was founded in July 2017 as Data Science Workshops B.V. and is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. It’s registered with the Chamber of Commerce under number 69174679 and has VAT number NL857767422B01.
2. Our focus
Our focus is on levelling up the data science skills and knowledge of your employees in a practical, engaging, and sustainable way.
3. Our topics
Our topics include programming, data visualisation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and devops. Indeed, all related to data science. We primarily employ open source technologies such as Python, R, Linux, Apache Spark, and various databases.
4. Our workshops
Our workshops are characterised as pleasant, engaging, and interactive. We combine theory with practical demonstrations and hands-on exercises. Moreover, we effortlessly adapt the workshop to the level of the participants and the needs of the organisation. Participants even have the opportunity to bring their own data and cases. Browse our entire catalogue.
5. Our services
Our services are all geared towards keeping your employees sharp and inspired. Beyond workshops, which is our bread and butter, we regularly facilitate:
- In-company training
- Inspiration sessions
- Examination and certification
- Data hackathons
- On-the-job coaching
6. Our instructors
Our instructors are certified experts. They have a solid theoretical background in data science and machine learning, experience with applying this in practice, and are skilled to deliver engaging workshops. They’re fluent in English, Dutch, Python, and R. Take, for example, Jeroen, our principal instructor.
Jeroen is an RStudio Certified Instructor who enjoys visualizing data, building machine learning models, and automating things using either Python, R, or Bash. Previously, he was an assistant professor at Jheronimus Academy of Data Science and a data scientist at Elsevier in Amsterdam and various startups in New York City. He is the author of Data Science at the Command Line. Jeroen holds a PhD in machine learning from Tilburg University and an MSc in artificial intelligence from Maastricht University.
7. Our process
Our process is personal yet professional. We inform the participants with any requirements and software installation instructions well ahead of time. Afterwards every participant receives a certificate of completion, the presentation, and all the code used and produced during the workshop. The workshop itself preferably takes place in person, but we’re well-equipped to adapt to an online or hybrid setting when needed.
8. Our schedule
Our schedule is continuously kept up-to-date with a variety of reasonably-priced open-enrollment workshops. Scheduled dates are always guaranteed. Participants can cancel for free up to four weeks prior to the workshop. Additional workshops can also be organised in consultation with you. See what we have lined up.
“Data Science Workshops organised for KPN a ten-week course on Data Science with R. The combination of training, on-site coaching, and remote support ensured that our analysts are applying the new knowledge and skills in their daily projects. For instance, they’re now capable to implement complex predictive models using R. We’re looking forward to the follow-up course on Advanced Machine Learning.”
9. Our clients
Our clients range from startups and scaleups to government agencies and corporate giants. They’re located all over the world. But size and location don’t matter. What matters is that they, like you, believe in the value of data and in the importance of keeping their employees sharp and inspired. See all our clients and read what their employees have to say about us.
10. Your LMS
Integrating our catalogue and schedule with your LMS should be no problem. We already generate XML feeds for several platforms, including Edudex, Bloomville, and Springest. If your LMS requires a custom feed or a different approach then we’d be happy to look into that.
