Monica Beals Announces New Courses for Discovery 2008
We are hard at work getting ready for “Discovery 2008: The data exploration conference.” For this year’s conference (formerly the JMP User’s Conference), we have assembled an exciting list of speakers from diverse backgrounds in industry, academia, and private consulting. For details about the conference, including speaker abstracts and bios, check out the home page at http://www.sas.com/events/jmp/index.html.
The primary focus of this conference has always been education, both through speaker and poster presentations and through the training opportunities prior to and immediately following the conference. Once again, we are pleased to present a variety of courses that provide opportunities beyond the typical training courses we offer throughout the year. Several courses from last year’s conference are back by popular demand, including a course on the analysis of dose-response curves using JMP, and an introduction to SAS business intelligence applications. We will again be offering both a beginner’s JMP scripting workshop and a panel discussion of advanced JMP scripting, as well as our two-day introductory scripting course. Building on the success of last year’s genomics course, there will be two courses this year to bring new and experienced users up to speed quickly with new features in JMP Genomics 3.2: Fundamentals of JMP Genomics and Advanced JMP Genomics.
We are also very excited about three new courses being developed for this year’s conference: Business Statistics and Data Analysis for Performance Excellence, Stability Analysis, and Preparing Data and Effective Reporting Using JMP. It goes without saying that the success of our standard curriculum is measured by how well we meet our customers’ training needs. These new offerings are based on customer feedback about the kinds of topics people would like to see covered in our courses, and are geared toward a wide variety of JMP users. Business Statistics and Data Analysis is a foundational course for our Six Sigma curriculum for professionals in the transactional, healthcare, and banking fields. Stability Analysis is geared toward scientists and quality control specialists involved in evaluating stability data who have a basic background in statistical analysis (ANOVA, regression). Preparing Data and Effective Reporting is designed for any individual who routinely uses data to create reports. This course will be useful both for newer JMP users and more experienced users who have not fully explored JMP’s formula editor and graphing capabilities.
