She has extensive experience, including many years working as a research scientist focused on data analysis, modelling using machine learning, simulation and other techniques. While working in both academia and at the CSIRO, part of her role included teaching a variety of data analysis skills. Tamara has designed our first Data Analytics Training Courses, R Basics and R Beginner, to provide beginners with the fundamental tools necessary to start using R for data analysis. She is consistently well reviewed by her students. 

"Great trainer, structure, material and manual. I have completed programming courses before but this one just made more sense! I'm sure it was the trainer. Looking forward to the Intermediate course." - R Beginner Sydney

What is R? 

R is an open source and free programming language that was developed for statistical analysis and production of high-quality graphics. It has long been popular with statisticians and academics who make up part of the large active user community behind R. This community has contributed over 15,000 packages that extend the base functionality of R, making it easy to implement a vast range of techniques for data manipulation, analysis and visualization.  

Is R compatible with Microsoft?

Microsoft have recognized the power of R and offer not only their own enhanced distribution of R, Microsoft R Open, but the ability to use R within Microsoft products and services such as Power BI, SQL Server / SQL Server Machine Learning Services and Visual Studio. Microsoft have also developed several packages, including the Microsoft Machine Learning Package for R. Check out R scripts in Power BI.

What is Remote Training?

Great course learned a lot thanks -Power BI Intermediate Brisbane
Damian - Power BI Intermediate, .
There was a lot of content to get through, but Ken made it interesting. A suggestion would be to perhaps build in some time in the afternoon session to create a 'flow' from start to finish, relevant to our individual workplaces, as it would enable students to utilise some of the skills to create useful elements for their workplace (while being able to troubleshoot with the instructor and other participants). Thanks Ken. -Office365 Advanced Melbourne
Jennifer - Office365 Advanced, .
First half of the course met my requirements, but the later part with adaptive wasn't required and very complex. Ken did a great job, Thanks very much! -Office365 Advanced Melbourne
Tara - Office365 Advanced, .
The course is a good refresher for me given that I have been self-taught in PBI. Jason has made the course easy to understand. It would be good if a guide/manual is provided alongside his training i.e. the use of buttons/bookmarks so the user can go back for practice . -Power BI Intermediate Canberra
Galvin - Power BI Intermediate, .
Good course with some helpful take-aways and gave a good understanding of a lot of the concepts I had already covered in my own learning. Could be helpful to have a bit more context around the uses of some functions rather than simply carrying out an exercise i.e "this sort of function is good for this". -Power BI Intermediate Canberra
James - Power BI Intermediate, .

Logan - Power BI Intermediate, .
John was great. Great handbook for reference. Could potentially look at adding more to the course. Calendar's aren't really needed with everything else available. But I would be curious to see what else Visio can do. Thanks again! -Visio Essentials Melbourne
