Tyler Chessman with Microsoft

Tyler Chessman is a technology specialist for Microsoft, helping customers evaluate and adopt Microsoft's business intelligence (BI) and advanced analytics platform. He is also a frequent author/trainer for SQL Pro, and the author of the book Understanding the United States Debt. Prior to joining Microsoft, Tyler spent several years as a consultant implementing financial, analytical, and sales force automation solutions.

Will present a talk entitled:
“Analyzing and Predicting the Success of Fracking Jobs”

In this session, we will analyze and visualize publicly available fracking data, along with production results from the state of Texas. We will then leverage machine learning techniques to build a predictive model that can help predict the success of future fracking jobs. Finally, we will publish a set of dashboards and reports to share our analysis with other users.

Location and Timing

This luncheon will be held at the Microsoft Technology Center, located at 750 Town and Country Blvd, Suite 1000, Houston, Texas. Please note that parking in the garage at 750 Town and Country Blvd will incur a charge of $12 for the day. Free parking can be found in the garage behind Brio restaurant on Queensbury Ln.

If you find you are no longer able to attend, please advise us of your cancellation as soon as possible to free up a space for another attendee.

Non-Member Rate

New for events after August 1, 2016, PPDM is introducing a non-member rate to attend Data Management Luncheons. This new charge of $25 is to help cover the costs associated with creating, running and maintaining our community events, not for the venue, food and beverage as they're generously sponsored. Memberships can be purchased for only $100, and if you decide to join PPDM within 10 business days of a luncheon, we will apply the cost for the luncheon to your membership. Please contact Member Services to get your credit. Should you decide to purchase your membership prior to registering, please purchase your membership as a separate transaction prior to registering for the luncheon in order to get the complimentary rate. NOTE: If you are an employee of a corporate member, recently let go by a corporate member or a student, you are entitled to a complimentary 1 year membership.

Members will still be able to attend luncheons for free thanks to our sponsors.
