Bayes in Action is a short and effective one-day training that helps you to master the basics of Bayesian regression.
The goal is to demonstrate professional data analysis. All topics are explained with examples, but with as little mathematics as possible. The course is at MSc – PhD level of thinking.
Moreover, there is ample time to answer your questions and for an extensive substantive discussion.

Dr. Romke Bontekoe
is your trainer. He has learned Bayesian statistics in practice. Simply by applying Bayes to challenges where standard methods did not work. But where his gut feeling was that there had to be a solution.
is now 60+ years and regards it is time to transfer his knowledge and experience to the younger generation. He holds a PhD in astronomy (1988) from the University of Groningen.
