Data for beginners

Slide 1

Getting into data can sound like getting into triathlons, where do you start? Many people think working with data requires fancy degrees and university level maths and coding skills. The truth is working with data is like any skill, people with thousands of hours of experience in data science will look like magicians, but they too started with their first data point. We offer internships for students, secondments & trainings for data beginners in community groups, researchers, policy and decision makers. Having some general knowledge about how to use a computer is enough to get started in the world of data. Data science is a real global and open community where code and ways of thinking are shared freely. RIDL have a commitment to building capacity, improving access and availability of data, with shared knowledge we believe that we can collectively improve outcomes for communities. Come check us out and learn how to work with data.
