Product Analytics: Transforming Social Data into Actionable Insights

Oct 13, 2016 · San Francisco, United States of America

R-Ladies San Francisco celebrates our 4-Year Anniversary with the workshop:

Product Analytics: Transforming Social Data into Actionable Insights

Interested in Product Analytics?

The field of data science has been rapidly expanded in recent years, with much of the growth in product analytics.

Data scientists are coming from a variety of backgrounds, many without prior experience dealing with human behavior.

Domain knowledge is vital to defining a metric/outcomes, feature selection and building a model.

What’s unique about user data? A lot of things – social processes are complex, undefined and context matters.

Join this engaging workshop with Joanne Rodrigues where she discusses tactics for exploring social processes. She’ll explore practical techniques for dealing with user data demonstrating them through entertaining examples and focusing on the future of social data. You'll leave the session with a heightened appreciation for social data and an excitement to apply what you learned.

About the speaker:

Joanne Rodrigues is a data scientist with three masters in mathematics, demography and political science. She worked at a number of startups, including most recently as the first data scientist at MeYou Health, creating frameworks to define and measure social dynamics and building all their predictive models. She is currently working on a book on Product Analytics and an e-book on R/R-Shiny.


This talk assumes a basic understanding of algorithms and statistics. The intended audience is data scientists or aspiring data scientists with a background in analytics. It also assumes a  basic understanding of how to work with data frames in R.
