I give basic classes on computer science (e.g., excel, database, programming) and more advanced classes in data mining (e.g., machine learning, artificial intelligence, text mining). All my lectures are complemented by practical projects using various languages (java, R, python).
See the list of ongoing classes on my teaching webpage.
