Data mining algorithms with Dejan Sarka
After more than a year, I had the pleasure attending another of Dejan Sarkas courses. This time it was his one day tour-de-force on data mining algorithms, with examples in SSAS multidimensional, Excel, R and AzureML.
I have previously written about why I like Dejan Sarkas teaching style. He has this good tendency to remember the why and not just directly dive into the how. I guess that's also why his course is called "Data Mining Algorithms in SSAS, Excel, R,and Azure ML."
The course touches a lot of ground, among others:
Principal Component Analysis
Un-supervised learning with neural networks
Multiple Linear Regression
Support Vector Machines
As always with Dejan Sarka, my head starts to hurt in the end of the day. Personally, I had to leave during the time series part, because I needed to prepare for being responsible for the Effektor sponsor table the next day. But I think my brain would have denied access anyway at that time of the day.
I can only recommed Dejan Sarkas course for every data professional working with data, analysis, BI and related topics on the Microsoft technology stack.
