A quick heads up that if you'd like to get a great introduction to doing data science with the R language, Joe Rickert will be giving a free webinar next Thursday, September 25: Data Science with R. Regular readers of the blog will be familiar with Joe's posts on this topic. A few recent examples include posts on comparing machine learning models, predictive models for airline delays, agent-based models, and many more. Register for the live webinar and Q&A with Joe, plus access to the slides and replay after the live session. Here's the overview:

Whenever data scientists are asked about what software they use R always comes up at the top of the list. In one recent survey, only SQL was rated higher than R. In this webinar we will explore what makes R so popular and useful. Starting with the big picture, we describe how R is organized and how to find your way around the R world. Then we will work through some examples highlighting features of R that make it attractive for data science work including:

  • Acquiring data
  • Data manipulation
  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Model building
  • Machine learning
