2018 New York City Data Science Workshop

April 20, 2018
Overview

Join us April 20 in New York City for the Data Science Workshop. This highly interactive experience is led by practitioners with firsthand experience working with the Teradata Analytics Platform. You will walk through several advanced analytic use cases and implement multi-genre advanced analytic techniques at scale on multi-structured data. At the end of the session attendees will:

  • Participate in hands on exercises to ingest and analyze data to derive critical business insights, and understand how insights could be operationalized in their unique business environments.
  • Learn about the variety of pre-built analytical techniques (e.g., nPath) that anyone in the organization can implement to address critical business needs at speed.
  • Develop an analytic app in the AppCenter framework.
  • Obtain enough practitioner knowledge to become impassioned advocates of advanced analytics as a practice and the Teradata Analytics Platform as the preferred solution within their organizations.

Prerequisites for the workshop include working knowledge of SQL, basic knowledge of scripting language, and experience with command-line interfaces.

Because of the fast-paced nature of this workshop, all labs are done via Teradata Studio client using pre-configured queries. You'll have the chance to run your own queries during some of the labs. The course uses Teradata Studio and Teradata Aster AppCenter to run queries using Teradata QueryGrid and SQL-MR functions on the Teradata Analytics Platform.

The workshop is complimentary.

LAPTOP REQUIREMENTS 
To make this day a success, please note the following requirements:

  • Please arrive at 8am or earlier
  • The hour from 8am-9am will be used to get your computer connected 

Bring your laptop
Windows PCs connect most readily, but Macs and Linux devices may also connect.  To complete the workshop you will securely connect to a Teradata environment running on AWS, via a bastion host, over the internet.  To make this connection, your laptop requires some client software, most of which is easily available and/or already installed.  
 
SSH client
We recommend PuTTY (free and open-source) and we provide the executable in our wizard for Windows machines.  If your corporate policy provides a different SSH client, that may work provided you are familiar with using security keys and configuring local and remote port forwarding. 
 
Microsoft Remote Desktop Client 
Please be sure this is available on your laptop prior to the session.

  • Windows comes with Remote Desktop Connection (To check, go to: Start -> Accessories -> Remote Desktop Connection OR type mstsc in the Start -> Run dialog Box)
  • Apple has a Microsoft Remote Desktop Client available in the App Store
  • Linux - appropriate Remote Desktop client for your distribution

 A note on firewall use if your corporate IT has questions:
We establish outbound SSH connections via TCP on Port 22, then connect internally from our Remote Desktop client to our SSH client via the localhost (127.0.0.1 TCP Port 53389). This is commonly allowed.

We will make every effort to assist you with connection, but every laptop has a different configuration!
