Lesson 1B (THURSDAY) Onsite

Welcome to the first lesson

Here are the goals

  1. Install R. It would be nice to try doing that on your own before coming to the class. Installing just R is easy, just follow instructions here. It would be preferable though to try to install RHadoop, instructions are here. If you find it difficult it is fine we will help you.
  2. Load the Airline dataset. We advise you to download it and make some preparations  by following the instructions here.
  3. Get to know the course material. Please take a look at the reading material.
  4. Select some attributes, sample and run your first linear regression.
  5. Trusting your results.
