Event Details

One of the most under-appreciated aspects of data science, the cleaning and munging of data that often represents the most significant time sink during analysis. While there is never a silver bullet for such a problem, knowing the right tools, techniques, and approaches can help minimize time spent wrangling data.

In this class you will:

  • Learn where to find novel data sets for analysis.
  • Get exposure to a typical ETL process and the best practices for each step.
  • Examine a case study highlighting the process of building a data analysis pipeline.
  • Understand the different ways to store your data (MySQL, MongoDB, Hadoop, etc.) and the tradeoffs of each.
  • Learn the best tools available to transform and manipulate data into a suitable format for analysis.
  • Meet other aspiring data scientists and learn how to participate in the growing data science community.

 This class is the fourth of a six part series providing a survey of each aspect of data science.

Interested in attending but live elsewhere?  Have a scheduling conflict?  Due to popular demand we are now offering this class remotely!  Buy a "Virtual" ticket and gain access to an online discussion board where the instructors answer all your questions, receive a video of the lecture, and get all the class materials. 



A childlike curiosity.


About Your Teachers

Jonathan and Ryan are the founders of Zipfian Academy, a school which trains the next generation of Data Scientists.

Jonathan first discovered his love of all things data while studying Computer Science and Physics at UC Berkeley. In a former life, he worked for Alpine Data Labs developing distributed machine learning algorithms for predictive analytics on Hadoop.

Jonathan has always had a passion for sharing the things he has learned in the most creative ways he can. He has been a mentor at Dev Bootcamp, taught classes at General Assembly, and is an instructor at Hack Reactor where he gets to combine his two favorite things: humans and code.



Ryan is fascinated by data in all its forms, binary and biological. Trained in Genetics and Genomics at UC Berkeley, he plumbed the depths of plant immunity at the Plant Gene Expression Center, building big data applications targeting next-generation sequencing technologies.

As a Sr. Systems Engineer at Nutanix, he worked on scale-out distributed computing solutions for virtualized environments. When not trying to pull beauty out of data, you can find Ryan hacking on 3D printers, DIY Bio, and open-source hardware.
