Event description

Description

The vision behind the @DataGirls movement is to introduce everyone interested in the logic, thinking and execution behind BI, and walk them through the basic problems and Cloud tools. They will be able to build upon this knowledge and either become junior BI consultants or/and move on to solve the business questions that they themselves face in daily business operations. The concept was created by DataFoundry members, female community Czechitas and the company Keboola.com

Close to 70% of BI work is actually in data preparation. If you do not have data prepared (extracted, cleaned and connected) then there is no room for further data discovery and analysis.

This part is also hardest to learn on your own. We will focus lots of our efforts on this, so when you leave @DataGirls you know why/how to do it.

“Lingua franca” of data is SQL. Together with our lectors, attendees will learn the basics of SQL right on their first day. Furthermore, participants will be able to join different data sets and polish them in order to make them ready for analysis.
