    It was an interesting meeting with awesome people and talks. Maybe next time someone could talk about the connection between C and R and first steps in C-programming of R, that would be rather interesting.

    Hi, thank you Andrie and Markus for the interesting talks.

    By the way, at Friday I forgot to mention that Springer has currently a special offer for the "Green Book": John M. Chambers: "Programming with Data: A Guide to the S Language" in the framework of Springer's "Yellow Sales Campaign". The book is rather old, but I bought it because it often helps me to read about the original ideas behind a programming language. In addition the book has the best description of S4 classes I know.

    Instead of 85.59 EUR at Amazon it costs now 42.79 EUR at book shops participating in the "Yellow Sales Campaign". In Cologne this is "Witsch, Behrendt + Schweitzer", in Düsseldorf for example "Stern Verlag". The "Yellow Sales Campaign" will last till end of July.

    It was interesting to see/meet other R people in the midst of Germany. Good lectures. Had another appoint yesterday but will join the supper next time.
    googleVis is indeed nice and easy but I personally don't like the fact that all data runs via Google servers; my Canadian friends call this attitude "German paranoia" :-)

    As someone who's been and is still in Academia, it was a fresh insight for me about R for enterprise. Thanks to Andrie for taking the time. And I'm quite interested now in trying out googleVis again. Cool interactive charts with minimal work (as simple as a function call), you bet ;). All round nice people and great atmosphere, as usual.

    Die Vorträge waren sehr interessant! Andrie vermittelte eine guten Eindruck über die Leistungsfähigkeit der R-Revolution Analytics-Funktionen und Markus zeigte über sehr gute Beispiele die grafischen Möglichkeiten von googleVis! GoogleVis werde ich sicher in kürze ausprobieren!
