Featured Presentation:

Adding R to your “R”senal: A Beginners Look at R

John Pertell, Database Administrator Dialysis Clinics Inc

R is a very powerful tool for analyzing and visualizing data. It’s been around for 20 years but until recently it was mostly used by statisticians. With the rapid growth of big data people are beginning to use R more and more. Microsoft added R to SQL Server with the 2016 release. In this beginner session we’ll look briefly at where R started. We’ll go over the basic syntax, objects, and program flow. We’ll see how to expand basic R to use functions and packages and how to read data from multiple sources, also how to visualize the data. And if time permits we’ll see how to use R inside SQL.
