Charles Givre is an unapologetic data geek who is passionate about helping others learn about data science and become passionate about it themselves. He has worked at Booz Allen Hamilton for the last five years as a data scientist for various government clientsand done some really neat data science work along the way, which hopefully saves U.S. taxpayers some money. Most of his work has been in developing meaningful metrics to assess how well the workforce is performing. Mr. Givre is a sought after speaker and has delivered presentations and training at conferences such as BlackHat, Strata + Hadoop World, Open Data Science Con, and others. Even more than the data science work, he loves learning about new technologies and techniques, and then teaching them. Charles has been instrumental in bringing Python scripting to his government clients, as well as to the analytic workforce. He has developed a 40-hour Introduction to Analytic Scripting class for that purpose. Additionally, he's developed and taught a 60-hour Fundamentals of Data Science class, which helps to put analysts on the data on-ramp. He's taught the class to Booz Allen staff, government civilians, and U.S. military personnel around the world. Charles has a Master's degree from Brandeis University, two Bachelor's degrees from the University of Arizona, and various IT security certifications. In his nonexistent spare time, he plays trombone, spends time with his family, and works on restoring British sports cars.
