R and its leading IDE, RStudio (, are excellent open source analysis software which can be run on AWS.

This gives more power than is available on a desktop, and allows long jobs to be run without tying up a local computer.

This talk will cover setting up and performing basic statistical analyses using RStudio and AWS. No previous knowledge of RStudio is needed.
