R is a language for statistical programming that is widely used among data scientists.

Last year Microsoft purchased Revolution Analytics, a leading R company. As a result, Microsoft recently released Visual Studio Tools for R and announced that R is going to be included in the upcoming SQL Server 2016.

  • What is R and why does it matter?
  • A brief look into statistics and visual data presentation
  • R in a nutshell
  • “There is no R in Develop, but there is one in DevelopeR”. R Basics.
  • Power of R: some basic examples showcasing R
  • A brief look at R in SQL Server 2016
