Presented by: Dr Imran Ghani, Monash University Malaysia

The lectures in this course & workshop are part of Dr. Imran Ghani’s recent book entitled Emerging Innovation in Agile Software Development, IGI Global, 2016. 

Attend this course and workshop and learn:

  • Agile mind-set, iteration & sprint planning, change management, user stories and requirements (functional, non-functional) in agile, design in agile (MVP), testing in agile, planning vs adaptiveness in agile, customer involvement & continuous feedback, retrospective, refactoring, reusability (Design Patterns)
  • what are methods and processes involved in agile software development including; Scrum, XP, Kanban, Scrum-ban, Lean, FDD, DSDM.
  • how to begin and use agile method;
  • how do we choose the right tool for the job.

The workshop participants need no knowledge of any programming language. The  methods  used  in  this  workshop  have  been  extensively  tested  through  several workshops given by the presenter for the past years.

This workshop includes practical hands-on sessions where participants are given the opportunity to apply in practice the theory they have learnt.

(d) 2-Day Workshop on Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques using WEKA

(please click on the title above for a copy of the brochure)

On 9 & 10 Oct 2017 (Kuala Lumpur) and 12 & 13 Oct 2017 (Singapore)

Presented by: Professor Tony Smith, University of Waikato, New Zealand

 

ThiData Mining - 4th Edition - ISBN: 9780128042915, 9780128043578s workshop is based on the latest edition of the book Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques (4th Edition, Nov 2016) using the associated WEKA toolkit. 

Each participant will receive a complimentary copy of this book

Key Features:

  • The workshop is practical in nature.  All topics are presented in the context of using WEKA, the most widely-used open source machine learning software in the world
  • The workshop includes half-a-day of hands-on exercises using WEKA and data sets to do actual data mining.  Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the workshop.

This workshop:

  • Explains how data mining algorithms work;
  • Helps you select appropriate approaches to particular problems; how to compare and evaluate the results of different techniques;
  • Shows you how to use the WEKA machine learning workbench.
  • Covers performance improvement techniques, including input pre-processing and combining output from different methods.
