MaGIC Academy: Data Science Primer Course Intro Session


At July 2015, MaGIC Academy launched 8 part time programmes focusing on iOS, Android, Data Science, Analytics, Front End, Visual Design, UX & Digital Marketing. We have conducted the Data Science course together with Big Data Malaysia and have recently completed the 1st batch.

This networking session is designed to connect analytics and data science professionals with the recent participants of the MaGIC Data Science Primer course. Participants will demonstrate real-world examples covering the whole data lifecycle from sourcing, preparing, to visualizations and interpretation, combined with some introduction to predictive analytics and machine learning. Attendees interested in registering for the next intake starting in February 2016 are encouraged to attend to learn from the course organizers and instructors.

Our guest presenter for the evening, Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail, Abyres Enterprise Technologies will give a talk on what it means to be a data scientist and the skills and talent needs of Big Data Analytics industries in Malaysia.
