Big Data Masterclass and DataCamp 2015

This document describes the two-stage approach in Big Data training developed at Statistics Netherlands.
The first stage is following a Masterclass on Big Data. This class provides the theoretical basis and consists of a one-day set of lectures on big data-related topics. The second stage is a DataCamp which enables participants a ‘hands on’ expertise through five days of practical work. This ensures a ‘learning-by-doing’ approach which is considered essential for Big Data training. Both stages and the results obtained in the 2015 DataCamp are included in this document.
