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.
In this session, we will take a look at R from an introductory point of view and see how the power of R can be used by .NET developers. Some of the highlights are:
- 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
- Building a dashboard with asp.net MVC and R (getting data from SQL Server as well as the internet)
