Obsdeck offers in-depth courses for increasing your knowledge of capacity management, performance engineering and practical
applications of data mining and machine learning. Whether you need to maintain or improve the skills of your staff
or offer highly specialized support and improve your customer satisfaction, Obsdeck has got you covered.
Statistics Topics covered include ways to explain the purpose of measures of location, variability,
skewness, mean, median, percentile, quantiles and calculate probabilities, identify, calculate and interpret confidence
intervals for means and proportions, conduct and interpret hypothesis tests using Student's t-test, compute and
use regression equations for data to make predictions, regression analysis, residual analysis, correlation, etc.
Programming in R Topics include - Data types, subsetting Reading/writing data, control structures,
functions, simulation, plotting and visualizing.
Topics include - Lifecyle of performance engineering, testing, management & monitoring, diagnostics and tuning. Modelling
techniques i.e. statistical, simulation and analytical.
Operational and queueing theory, applications of Little's Law, workload characterization, general queuing networks, simulations
(discrete event, monte carlo, etc), time series and regression modelling.
Tools of trade will also be covered - JMeter, HP Loadrunner, Rational Performance Tester, etc.
Topic covered include - Requirements gathering for capacity management, non-functional requirements gathering, workload characterization
and modelling (both simulated and statistical),
time series analysis and forecasting (ARIMA, Holt Winters, etc). Linear, logarithmic and exponential modelling.
An introduction to machine learning and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: Supervised learning (eg. generative/discriminative
learning, parametric/non-parametric learning, neural networks, support vector machines),
Unsupervised learning (eg. clustering, dimensionality reduction, kernel methods), reinforcement learning and adaptive control.
