I got an email asking for resources (other than courses) for data analytics at Columbia. This is what I wrote in reply:
- The library runs workshops on analytics: http://library.columbia.edu/research/workshops.html.
- You can join student organizations such as Columbia Data Science Society (http://datascience.columbia.edu/columbia-data-science-society) and Columbia Statistics Club (https://www.facebook.com/columbiastatisticsclub/). Both groups organizes hack-athons and meetups.
- The Data Science Institute (DSI) organizes events and seminars for a wide range of audience. The institute industry innovation series features speakers from industry have especially interesting talks (https://industry.datascience.columbia.edu/innovation).
