Sydney .NET User Group: .NET to The Power of R1 - TJ Gokcen

Sydney .NET User Group: .NET to The Power of R1 - TJ Gokcen

R is a language for statistical programming that is widely used among data scientists. Last year Microsoft purchased Revolution Analytics, a leading R company. As a result, Microsoft recently released Visual Studio Tools for R and announced that R is going to be included in the upcoming SQL Server 2016.

In this session, we will take a look at R from an introductory point of view and see how the power of R can be used by .NET developers. Some of the highlights are:

• What is R and why does it matter?

• A brief look into statistics and visual data presentation

• R in a nutshell

• “There is no R in Develop, but there is one in DevelopeR”. R Basics.

• Power of R: some basic examples showcasing R

• A brief look at R in SQL Server 2016

Building a dashboard with MVC and R (getting data from SQL Server as well as the internet)

    Hi Rob, the short answer is no. "S" is the father of "R" :-)

    The talk is not a data science talk, but rather an intro to R from a .net developer's point of view. Here is a related Stack Overflow link for inversing a matrix in R:

    Also, for those of you that are interested in an Inverse Matrix Calculator:

    does 'R' stand for 'regression' (analysis).... would be good to have native matrix inversion... my nukes need more bang!
