Dr. Stefan Bache is cofounder of Rhus.club and the Copenhagen useR group, and author of the magrittr and ensurer R packages. Stefan offers one-on-one micro-training/consulting.
Stefan holds a PhD in econometrics, a branch of statistics, a MSc in economics and finance, and a BSc in business administration. He has used R for more than 5 years, and taught both small and large R classes and stats classes where R was employed. He co-founded two useR groups, CopenhagenR and Rhus.club, and authored several packages, both open source (e.g. magrittr w/Hadley Wickham, and ensurer) and non-public packages for business.
Stefan offers one-to-one “micro-training/consulting” via the web/Skype. This is a great way to get insight/understanding/perspective on various concepts, or get feedback/suggestions on stuff that you are working on. Have you been stuck with questions like “What is method dispatch, and why should I care?”, “Why and how should I avoid looping in R”, “What are some essential things to have in mind when authoring functions?”, “Why does my function not work?”, or similar? It could also be an introduction to a topic like “pipelines for data analysis” or “making codes more robust”.
For some it can be tough to understand/choose between explanations offered in forums, or maybe you just learn better with real-time dialogues. A session could be as short as 10-15 minutes or whatever suits the question/topic best, and is meant primarily for beginners / intermediate R programmers. It is also possible to “meet” regularly for discussing e.g. project progress.
Stefan also offer (physical) introductory short-courses in Denmark (or close-by), and is willing to consider other kinds of requests and training possibilities. He does not currently offer large-scale consulting or long-term training.
Stefan can provide trainings in both Danish and English.
Micro-sessions will not need too much lead time, depending on Stefan’s availability. Physical short-courses will need to be planned ahead.
