Why use R for Data Analysis?

September 11, 2013

(This article was first published on Adventures in Analytics and Visualization, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This was a presentation made to few of my colleagues. The idea was to provide a brief introduction to R, provide few reasons for my switching to it, and give some samples of graphics/interactive visualizations that could be created with minimal coding. Slidify (impressjs framework) was used for putting the presentation together (the coding is imperfect) and the graphs/charts used ggplot2, rCharts, corrplot, healthvis, and PerformanceAnalytics libraries.

(The presentation may not show up with the impressjs jazz if the browser is incompatible with it. Apologies in advance.)
