Charles Givre is an unapologetic data geek who is passionate about helping others learn about data science and become passionate about it themselves. For the last five years, Charles has worked as a data scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton for various government clients and has done some really neat data science work along the way, hopefully saving US taxpayers some money. Most of his work has been in developing meaningful metrics to assess how well the workforce is performing. For the last two years, Charles has been part of the management team for one of Booze Allen Hamilton’s largest analytic contracts, where he was tasked with increasing the amount of data science on the contract—both in terms of tasks and people.

Even more than the data science work, Charles loves learning about and teaching new technologies and techniques. He has been instrumental in bringing Python scripting to both his government clients and the analytic workforce and has developed a 40-hour Introduction to Analytic Scripting class for that purpose. Additionally, Charles has developed a 60-hour Fundamentals of Data Science class, which he has taught to Booz Allen staff, government civilians, and US 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.

Drill is an open source, schema-free SQL engine that can query all kinds of data. Applying Drill to network security problems potentially offers a leap forward in network analysis. Charles Givre demonstrates how to use Drill to query simple data, complex data, and data from databases and big data sources and walks you through writing your own functions to extend Drill's functionality.
