On 25 November 2019, BayesCamp will be hosting a one-day course called Get up and running with Bayesian data analysis, in central London. I am delighted that this will be taught by Rasmus Bååth from Lund University and King Entertainment. That makes him the statistician behind Candy Crush. His YouTube videos introducing Bayes are very popular, and I’ve been recommending them to people for ages.
In the morning, he’ll introduce you to Bayesian analysis, remove the mystery and show you how it can be helpful to you in many ways. Then, in the afternoon, he’ll get you started writing some models of your own using Stan. You can interface with Stan in many ways, and in this course, Rasmus will use RStan and PyStan, though the Stan code is common to all interfaces, and that’s the focus.
You can find out more and book a ticket at bayescamp.com/courses. Students / unwaged tickets are £125 but you have to email me at email@example.com to get one. Full-price tickets are £270 and you can get them via the website to Eventbrite. If you prefer an invoice so your institution can pay by bank transfer, email me.
That’s a whole day of small-batch, artisanal Bayesian training you get for half the price of a lot of other events out there! There will be between 10 and 40 attendees (we have yet to choose the venue and room size) so there’s ample opportunity to discuss how you can use Bayes and Stan in your own work. If you have any questions, email me too! I like chatting.
