I will be presenting a talk titled Data Analysis with R and Julia for the PASS Virtual Business Analytics Conference on May 9 (12 PM, UTC -4). I had previously presented this talk at the PASS Business Analytics Conference in Chicago. This talk will even be better: I will be enhancing the presentation based on feedback people had during that time. As well, I am inviting people from the new Meetup group, Atlanta Julia Users, to both attend and see this talk. This blog post has the details.
R is a free, open-source environment for statistical analysis and graphing. In its almost 20 years of existence, R has remained popular in both academic and business environments. The newer Julia is a high-level, high-performance dynamic programming language for technical computing, with syntax that is familiar to users of other technical computing environments. This session outlines functional and performance differences between these two software packages. You’ll see demonstrations of best tips for integrating this software with Windows and walk away with guidelines for working with commercial software.
This presentation is free and the link is at http://bavc.sqlpass.org/. Also at this link is general information on the PASS Virtual Business Analytics chapter, which has regularly scheduled free events.
