Summer Short Course – Data Analysis and R (11th-12th Jul)

Making Sense out of Software Engineering Data And an introduction to R

Prof Sandro Morasca, Università degli studi dell’Insubria, Italy

The FREE summer short course (funded by Erasmus+) was organised by Prof Martin Shepperd on 11-12 July, 2018 (13:00-17:00 in WLFB208).

The course addressed the techniques that can be sensibly used to extract knowledge out of Software Engineering data acquired via experiments or routine data collection in industrial contexts, to make it practically useful. The course described and critically discussed a number of data analysis techniques, by explaining their preconditions and their outcomes. The course illustrated both basic, traditional techniques and innovative ones, like those based on Robust Regression or machine learning.  Also, it  explained how the models obtained can be validated.

A big thank you to Sandro and Martin for running this fantastic short course.
