R: It’s Not Just For Pirates Anymore

The .NET family of languages covers a wide range of different programming paradigms. Until recently, data analysis wasn’t well-represented in the .NET world. With today’s proliferating amounts of data, all developers should consider learning more about data analysis. Enter R, a language tailor-made for data analysis. With the release of R Tools for Visual Studio, .NET developers can use this powerful language using familiar tools.

In this talk, we’ll explore the R programming language, what you can do with it, and why R is a good addition to your toolkit. We’ll talk about both traditional R tools and Microsoft’s data analysis tools. After this talk, you’ll be slicing and dicing data with ease.

Speaker: Dustin Ewers
