If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area on March 10, the ACM organizing a course on R that you might want to check out. Robert Kabacoff, author of the useful Quick-R website and the book R in Action, will present the course “An introduction to R for software developers and data analysts“. The course is sponsored by Revolution Analytics and at just $120 for a full-day course (even less if you're an ACM member), this is great value. Full details are available at the ACM page linked below.

R has become one of the most popular languages for data analysis and graphics. This workshop will provide a practical introduction to this comprehensive platform.  Participants will learn to import data into R from a variety of sources; clean, recode, and restructure data; and apply R’s many functions for summarizing, modeling, and graphing data. Both basic and more advanced forms of data analysis and graphics will be covered. Additional topics include navigating R’s comprehensive help systems, practical advice for processing data, common programming mistakes to avoid, and useful functions for data mining.
