About us

Peer review

Whether you just need a second set of eyes on your work, or something more official, we can help. If you’re a small team or a team of one, it can be really tough to get someone to check your work. How do you know you’re right? Steph’s been there and her solution was to get someone from outside the organisation to come in and do a review. Now we offers these reviews too!

Readiness Reviews

Is your organisation ready to start doing data science? Before we set up Locke Data, we saw plenty of data science initiatives happen. Some failed, some succeeded. Our focus is on helping folks make sure theirs succeeds! One of the best ways we’ve found to help that happen is to work with organisations before they start their initiative and working out whether they’re ready to start, or if there are things they need to sort out first.

Technical leaderhsip

Got the will and the data but don’t know how to run your first data science project? One of our key offerings is to be a guiding hand through your first project(s) – We’ll work with you to design an architecture, map out the process, and mentor your team through the project. This can be as light a touch as providing a rough plan, or as intensive as daily mentoring and development.


It doesn’t have to all be MOOCs and videos these days for learning. There’s still a place for a good book! We’re building up a series of books that help people learn the fundamentals of R. Working with R Working with R is the first book in the R Fundamentals series. The book introduces you to the core concepts of R and helps you be effective as soon as you start.
