Quick thoughts on “R-Powered Web Apps”

Good session at last nights Bay Area UseR Group meeting on R-Powered Web Apps. First of all, there’s clearly a lot of interest in using R in Web-based applications: although the program was only announced a week ago, more than 100 people showed up for the talks from Jeff Horner and Jeroen Oons. Second, the Twitter offices are very cool (fact: the offices are adorned with Twitter @handles instead of the usual nameplates) and it was great to see all the Twitter folks joining in the conversations about R. (Not coincidentally, Twitter is looking for people to help analyze their data.) Slides and video from the sessions should be available soon, I’ll write more and link to them when they’re available.
