This class is not included in Data Day Texas 2016 registration. You must signup for it separately. AND, you *do not* need to sign up for Data Day in order to register for this class.
For years we begged Trey Blalock to teach this class. He finally offered it when he came to Austin for Data Day 2015. The class sold out. We've convinced Trey to come back to Austin and offer his class again during Data Day 2016. The class will no doubt sell out again.
Here's what people who've taken the class are saying:
"Excellent, especially the non-technical aspects around engagement and report writing"
"Definitely solid, very glad for the opportunity. Of course you know that Trey is well qualified with the material, no question there, but beyond that, he was well organized, stayed reasonably on topic, and the tool kit provided was well considered and useful."
"The class was a really good high-level overview with a lot of information, tons of really helpful links and notes, and a little bit of depth where it made sense. Almost every topic was accompanied with "... and here's a list of books you should read if this interests you". I'd say it was well worth the time and cost."
