Learning from Each Other

One of our first activities was to assess what skill sets people had in the room.  I am particularly interested in opportunities for us to all learn from each other, so we spent some time having folks indicate whether they were a novice or an expert on the following topics:

  • data munging
  • graphic design
  • statistical analysis
  • visualization
  • writing

Of course this type of work needs more skills than that, but these are some keys ones.  It turned out that we have a good distribution of skills levels on all these topics!

Here are the big papers we used, so you can see for yourself!
