Accelerating Discovery with Visualization: Hands-On Workshop
Intended Audience: Practitioners interested in gaining insights faster and having more impact with visualization.
Knowledge Level: No prior experience required. You will be provided hands-on instruction on how to use JMP.
This half-day workshop provides a hands-on experience using JMP's interactive, dynamic data visualization and analysis capabilities as well as JMP's interactive, dynamic information presentation. Regardless of your current tool use—spreadsheets, writing code, or other—you will see how visual exploration speeds your time to value and how compelling visualizations can compel action. You will experience a visual productivity boost, making your analysis efforts more efficient and effective.
The instructor, a world-reknowned author, professor, speaker, and thought leader, will lead participants with hands-on visual discovery and story-telling:
- A short Introduction to JMP
- An overview of a variety of visual data analysis methods and examples to speed discovery
- A tour of information visualization possibilities to tell the data's stories
- Options to share your results:
- For repeatability and collaboration: journals, scripts, and apps
- For decision making and impact: data movies, dropboxing to iPad for display on the go and more
Hardware: Bring Your Own Laptop
Each workshop participant is required to bring their own laptop running Mac or Windows. A trial version of JMP will be made available to all registered participants prior to the workshop. Attendees receive an electronic copy of the course materials and related JMP examples at the conclusion of the workshop.
- Workshop starts at 1:30pm
- Break: 2:30 - 2:50pm
- End of the Workshop: 4:30pm
