Magnum Dampier teaches R Programming: Practical Data Science and Modeling.

“My love for R began out of complete necessity, when other languages and methods just wouldn’t work for the type of outcome I was needing.

Through the years of challenging work (mainly on the part of others), R has become a top contender for data science types alike, myself included. I spent over 10 years in a fortune 300 company, dealing with information systems, pricing, and inventory control. I’ve sat on the board of a point of sale development company, volunteer as a computer science teacher locally (teaching Python and Java, I will convince them to go to R soon enough!), and currently serve as a Director of Information Systems in the insurance industry.

I attended Harvard Extension School for data science, and am truly a lifelong learner of all things techy. I have a fantastically supportive wife, and 2 kids that have made me balder and fatter than I would like to admit. In my spare time, I enjoy being a sub-sub-par guitar player, chasing my kids around, and learning more technical skills. I look forward to serving all of you, and hope you get the R bug just like I did!”

Martin Chandler teaches Beautiful Data Visualization Projects in D3.js for Beginners.

“I am a techie artist who has big ambitions. I currently attend the University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse to earn my Bachelors for Mathematics and Computational Physics. I also have a computer science minor which I wish I had time to turn into a major! I am studying to become a theoretical astrophysicist. I have been dreaming of becoming one since I was 9 years old. During summer, I am a full-time undergraduate researcher.

Currently I am working on simulating satellites which may be used to develop models to detect extraterrestrial civilizations. I am also a freelancer for anything I think I can help a client with. In my free time I paint, study German, and create 3D animations. I know Java, Python, R, idl, MatLab, and a tiny bit of Fortran. I love to teach and am part of a computer science outreach program that teaches the La Crosse community all things CS.”
