R YOU READY TO RRRRUMMMMMBLLLLEEEE
R, the punchline of many great pirate jokes, is an open-source analytic language that is quickly becoming the go-to choice of today’s statisticians. But it’s not just for data scientists. It is an approachable, extendable, modular platform that can be used to take control of data, build machine learning models, and become a better data jockey.
Bring your laptop to this workshop, you’ll want to work along as we explore the capabilities of R. Together we’ll learn and explore topics such as: * Get data from common sources the right way * Scrub data and make it clean enough to trust * Quickly analyze data to discover new patterns * Visualize data to share the story with others * Build machine learning models to make predictions * Deploy models for others to use
You won’t walk away empty handed. Attendees of this session will be given code samples that include best practice solutions to common activities such as joining two data sets, collecting data from a database, writing output for later use, and many more.
To follow along you’ll need a laptop (Windows, Mac, or Linux) with CRAN R or Microsoft R Open and a capable IDE such as RStudio or R Tools for Visual Studio
