Here are some resources for learning programming and data science. Most of them are joint work with Nick Ulle.
- Course material, including many YouTube lectures, from STA141C - Big Data and High Performance Computing when I taught it in 2019 at UC Davis. We covered lots of parallel R, shell, and SLURM.
- 2 day SQL Workshop for business majors at UC Davis. Assumes little technical background.
- Python 4 week course
- 1.5 hour YouTube video, Overview of Python for Data Analysis. Here is the code repository
