Data Wranglers DC Message Board › Code and presentation from Stata vs. R
Mc Lean, VA
Good morning and happy Thursday,
Thanks to everyone who came out last night for the meetup. Jason and Refi provided a ton of information, and seeing Stata and R side-by-side was eye opening for me, and further proved that R is awesome :)
The code and slides have been posted to GitHub. You can grab them both here >>

In July we're doing a joint meetup with SPDC and DC NLP. The topic - the nuts and bolts of natural language processing using Python/NLTK and R. If this meetup is anything like the other NLP meetups, we'll all need to put on our uber data geek hats. RSVP for that bit of awesome here >>
Thanks To ARPC For Food and Beverage
A huge thanks to (my employer) ARPC for providing food and beverages for the meetup last night. As a group we seem to love pizza as they all disappeared last night.
