Dr. Kleinman has been a SAS user since 1991 and he has been using R and related software since 1996. His philosophy is that data analysts benefit when they have more tools in their statistical toolboxes– there’s little cost and great advantage to be gained by learning a new software package with different capabilities. His book: “SAS and R: Data Management, Statistical Analysis, and Graphics” was written to help SAS users make a quick entry into R. His associated blog, “SAS and R” (sas-and-r.blogspot.com), has been viewed more than 600,000 times. He has taught his training course, “R Boot Camp for SAS users,” in academia and internationally for a Fortune 100 company.

Dr. Kleinman uses mainly R and SAS, but has used Stata and many narrower-scope programs. Foreign travel will likely need more lead time.

Stefan Milton Bache
Stefan Milton BacheAarhus, Denmark

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.

Stephan also offers (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.

Maarten-Jan Kallen holds a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. His expertise is in risk analysis and operations research, both of which borrow heavily from the fields of statistics, probability theory and computational optimization. He is managing partner and chief scientist at BeDataDriven, a company that provides consulting, training, and software development in the area of data management and analysis as well as predictive modeling. He has over a decade of experience in engineering consulting and a deep understanding of programming languages for data analysis such as R, Python, and Matlab.

Maarten-Jan started using R at version 1.9 which was introduced in early 2004 and has provided both open registration and on-site company trainings in the R programming language for a number of years. He is also one of the contributors to Renjin, the R interpreter that is written in Java to run on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). He has had the opportunity to work for various large corporations that use R as part of their mission-critical tasks. This has given him insight in how R code can be successfully deployed and used in technically demanding environments by following best-of-practice software development techniques such as continuous integration, unit testing, dependency management, and automated documentation.

His R trainings are based on the latest version of GNU R and use the RStudio IDE for software development. He uses a hands-on approach with lots of exercises and real-world examples, backed by his own high quality training materials.

Please schedule courses a few months ahead of time for tailor-made trainings, or a few weeks ahead of time for introductory trainings. I can provide courses in both English and Dutch.
