Once you’ve got the basic skills in programming and statistics, the best way to learn data analysis is to do it. So, we’re developing a practical experience program for aspiring data analysts. The program is in the pilot phase with a small set of students, but you can read about how it works on the Internship Program’s wiki page.
The goal of the program is to develop more experience with answering questions with data in San Diego and to make that experience available to non profits, government agencies, journalists and other organizations that have questions that could be answered with data, but don’t have the time or skills to do it.
We’re currently recruiting participants, mentors and projects. So, if you’d like to develop data skills, teach data skills, or have a data project, let us know.
