About the Course

This course is designed to introduce risk managers and trading professionals to the basics of data science. There is a heavy emphasis on using R open source tools and packages. While previous programing experience is useful but not required to follow the examples. This course is designed to be hands-on and interactive which means that the participants are expected follow the course material and try the examples.

Participants are required to bring their own laptops with an ability to connect to classroom Wifi. Participants, however, are not expected to install any R software, as a cloud version of RStudio will be provided by the course organizers.
