Strata Workshop: Street Fighting Data Science

At the upcoming Strata conference in late February 2012, they’ll be hosting workshops on applying better data science practices in the real world. 

One of the workshops will be held by Pete Skomoroch, who is a Principal Data Scientist at LinkedIn and focuses on reputation systems, personalization, and creating data driven products like LinkedIn Skills.  Here’s a snippet from the workshop description that makes these types of workshops “dead on”:
