Presenting at hackNY Masters: 3 statistical tricks

If you're in NYC today around NYU, I'm presenting at the HackNY Masters conference.  I'll be presenting at 8:30---the topic being "3 Statistical Tricks Every Hacker should know." 

This will be a painless and generally theory-free introduction to tools that statisticians use all the time, along with practical implementations in R and python.  I'll cover easy forecasting, predicting yes/no outcomes, and testing whether sets of numbers are really different, or just /seem/ different.  You can chain these together, and probably conquer the world.

Code is here: https://github.com/mittenchops/hackNYmasters

Slides are in the repo, too.

Check out the students demos tomorrow: Sunday, September 29th from 12pm-2pm.  Registration is https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8479667915
