Learning R via Python…or the other way around (with video!)

January 8, 2010

(This article was first published on Zero Intelligence Agents » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Last night I was one of five speakers at the NYC R Statistical Programming Meetup. The topic last night was dubbed the R Rosetta Stone, and the intent was to show how R as a language translated into several other analytical platforms and programming languages. Other speakers covered MATLAB, SAS, SQL/Postges and Clojure/Incanter—I discussed Python.

Soon, videos of the talks will be posted online, but until then you can download my talk, “Learning R via Python (or the other way around)” here. Also, the slides from all other talks are available at the meetup website. Enjoy!

UPDATE: The video of my talk is now available, and can be viewed after the jump. Due to upload throttling at VCASMO, my talk is the only one currently online, but I will be adding the others as bandwidth becomes available.

UPDATE II: Additional videos from Josh Reich’s talk “Data munging with R and SQL“, and Harlan Harris’s on “MATLAB/R Dictionary” are now available for your viewing pleasure.
