The R Rosetta Stone

  • January 7, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • Columbia - Statistics Playroom

The votes are in, and by a slim margin the group has decided that we will focus on how R translates among multiple languages for the January meetup. As such, during this meetup we will discuss how basic programming functions, operations and paradigms translate between R and four other popular programming languages. Given the tight margin in the voting, however, we will also spend slightly more time discussing Python and R.

Here is the tentative schedule:

  • Python - Drew Conway
  • Matlab - Harlan Harris
  • SAS - Georgette Asherman
  • SQL - Josh Reich
  • Incanter - Shane Conway

As you can see, we are looking for two (or more) volunteers to discuss how Python and Matlab commands translate into R. If you have expertise and are interested in giving a talk please let us know!

    Excellent set of presentations covering a wide set of languages.

    I was expecting more technical content and less of a comparison of language syntax.

    Good topic. Uneven presentation. Maybe better if all speakers used the same format and examples (if they did, it wasn't clear). Thanks.

    I thought the topics were all very relevant and on the spot with what's planned. There was a lot of recommended resources for people to go play and investigate on their own which was great. All the speaker did a very good job, in both the contents and their deliveries. I was very pleased with the wealth of knowledge I picked up today.
