Session 1: Introduction to Data Science Programming
The first session starts with an introduction to the principles and best practive in data science. This session introduces the basices of the R language to undertake statistical analysis. This session uses a data set with water quality laboratory testing for a drinking water network. Participants use this data set to find descriptive statistics.
|10:30||Morning refreshments and networking|
Session 2: The Tidyverse
The tidyversee provides a layer of functionality on top of the core R functions that simplify analysing data. In this session, participants learn how to clean data. The case study on this data is the result of a survey among American water utility customers about their perception of water services. Participants use this data set to clean, transform and visualise the data.
Session 3: Analysing Data
In this last session, participants will analyse an extensive data set to find anomalies in the data. The case study for this session is simulated smart meter data for a water system.
This workshop is designed for water utility professionals with little to no experience in writing code. Paricipants will go away with an introduction to code writing and some water utility examples of how to clean, transform, analyse and visualise data with the final session of the workshop introducing participants to data analysis for smart and digital meters.
To participate in this workshop, you will need the following:
