    It was a great presentation. Well done! Got a lot of incites on how analytics can enhance the web experience. As a matter of curiosity, why did Norstrom's move away from using "R" and start using python. Also, is it possible to get access to Jason's presentation?

    I am looking forward to the next meeting.

      Yah, I was curious about that as well. Jason, were you able to replicate the "R" algorithms in Python and did moving to Python open up development to more people (assuming more understand a scripting language like Python)? Also, I don't remember if you covered this but did you need to leverage MapReduce (either in R or Python) to train your models?

    Did Jason mention his presentation is posted somewhere accessible?
