Have you wondered how huge software projects, like the Google search engine, are developed? In this course, you’ll move beyond coding in the “main” method to learn to design and build more complex Java software projects (though not quite as complex as the Google search engine!). We’ll explore how to divide up a large project into a hierarchy of classes and how to increase the functionality of your projects by importing existing libraries. We’ll also look at some core algorithms for searching for and sorting data. And along the way, you will develop an exciting interactive application with a graphical user interface.

Have you ever had the perfect data science experience? The data pull went perfectly. There were no merging errors or missing data. Hypotheses were clearly defined prior to analyses. Randomization was performed for the treatment of interest. The analytic plan was outlined prior to analysis and followed exactly. The conclusions were clear and actionable decisions were obvious. Has that every happened to you? Of course not. Data analysis in real life is messy. How does one manage a team facing real data analyses? In this one-week course, we contrast the ideal with what happens in real life. By contrasting the ideal, you will learn key concepts that will help you manage real life analyses.
