Introduction to R and Data Science Tools in the Microsoft Stack
Track: Analytics and Visualization
R is the most popular statistics language used today. It is one of the most useful tools in the data scientist's tool belt. It is also integrated into the MS stack in tools like Azure ML, SQL Server and Power BI and can be used to take your data analytics to the next level.
Come to this session to get an introduction to the R language including installing and configuring R and RStudio, how to access and manipulate data, install packages, create and use variables, use control flows and some basic graphing and statistical analysis. We will finish with a very brief introduction of how R integrates in Azure ML, Power BI and SQL Server.
The focus of the session will be primarily on the introduction to the R language and getting attendees comfortable with using R to start the journey to Data Science!
