Analytics folks - could any of you recommend a classroom based training as primer in python / data science? Have a research and analytical background but not a quant and don’t code much.

Not sure that a primer in Python would be that useful for a director (it’s just a tool), but the introduction to statistical learning is a great book that focuses on the “core” of what most people consider DS which is modeling

Pm1 have you read the book “ Introduction to Statistical tool” ?

I found that quite dense and more for academic. I just couldn’t start at all

There are quite a few but codecademy offers a good start

I forgot to mention edX which offers some classroom type classes but online so you can be flexible with your time, but you can get a lot out of an hour on one of the “try it out” online apps

Fair PM1 - don’t expect to come out of a intro class and code. But trying to get a better sense of the basics so I’m not flying blind and can better manage/support my technical teams

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
