Description

You have data. You need insights. The bridge between "data" and actionable "insight" is often statistics.

But to a lot of us, stats are scary, foreboding monsters that remind us of a miserable 8am class sophomore year in college.

It's too bad, really, because learning stats in a vacuum - in a classroom without context - is like watching a sunset on TV. Nice, maybe, but not nearly as memorable or powerful as the real thing.

The real thing is in your data. It's hidden behind a set of deceptively simple concepts, tools and techniques.

So bring that data and let's explore The Zen of Data.

The Zen of Data is "stats for the dataphobic," also known as "stress free stats."

The real thing is in your data. It's hidden behind a set of deceptively simple concepts, tools and techniques.

So bring that data and let's explore The Zen of Data.

The Zen of Data is "stats for the dataphobic," also known as "stress free stats."

We operate on a few simple principles:

- You have data. And you have a spreadsheet. There's no need to grind out numbers.

- However, it's very important to understand the mathematical principles behind the way your data behaves. Or misbehaves, as the case may be.

- A gentle introduction to concepts + some practical tutorials in data operations (data functions in spreadsheets mainly, at this level) will take you a long way toward overcoming dataphobia.

That's what The Zen of Data is all about. You'll start with a gentle introduction to stats and data, then move right to practical, applied concepts around:

-Averages
-Variance
-Distribution
-Standard Deviation
-Correlation
-Covariance
-ANOVA
-Regression
-Data Location
-Data Modeling
-Data Visualization

Todd Wieland operates Canis Learning Systems in Tampa, FL where he creates learning products and systems that help people leverage knowledge and technology to create great careers and businesses.

His projects focus on topics as diverse as marketing, analytics, manufacturing math, game and app development, filmmaking and media, automation and transportation technology.

The theme that ties all of Canis Learning Systems' and Todd's projects together is opportunity: We live in an age of unbounded possiblity, empowered and ennobled by the acquisition and application of knowledge.

The promise of the future for generations to come is built on specialization. Helping others gain and apply specialized knowledge, sharing specialized applications and leveraging unique niches is an economic and social trend with almost unlimited potential.

Coming from a long line of entrepreneurs and small business operators (he started working in his dad's neighborhood store at age 11), he has an eclectic background in education, technology, media and even runs a snow cone machine on the weekends.
