Slides from “Tapping the Data Deluge with R” lightning talk #rstats #PAWCon

Here is my presentation from last night’s Boston Predictive Analytics Meetup graciously hosted by Predictive Analytics World Boston.

The talk is meant to provide an overview of (some) of the different ways to get data into R, especially supplementary data sets to assist with your analysis.

All code and data files are available at github: http://bit.ly/pawdata (https://github.com/jeffreybreen/talk-201210-data-deluge)

The slides themselves are on slideshare: http://bit.ly/pawdatadeck (http://www.slideshare.net/jeffreybreen/tapping-the-data-deluge-with-r)

    Again, many thanks for sharing the knowledge.

    Vic
