Learn from data analysis experts and a small group of other government knowledge workers in-person to hone your data analysis capabilities. Training workshops involve short lectures, group discussions, and culminate with completion of a capstone project. Online courses provide a foundation for participating at the in-person training.
I experienced so many positive things during the Socrata Data Academy. The 'How to Frame a Data Analysis Project' approach is excellent for narrowing one’s scope to keep from getting overwhelmed.
This was by far one of the best workshops I’ve attended. It is very engaging and insightful. I especially enjoyed working on the Capstone project with my team; bring research and data together into a visual masterpiece that anyone can understand.
The Socrata Data Academy was a unique opportunity to collaborate with local government staff from different backgrounds and experience. Learning and working together on hands-on data analysis projects helped us to connect with new ways of approaching problems we currently face in our county.
