Review of R in NYT and GDAT

January 8, 2009

GDAT instructor, Jim Holtman, pointed me at this review of R in yesterday's New York Times. It definitely puts SAS on the defensive.

Update: Another piece in the tech section of NYT.

If you want to know how to apply R to performance data, sign up for the Guerrilla Data Analysis Techniques class scheduled for August 2009 and learn from Jim personally.
