This session is going to go over R, starting from the very basics.

Ever been curious about some of the tools the "big data" people use to generate the data displays and presentations that appear all over the Web? It begins with tools that can slice, dice, dissect and recombine the data in various ways, and for a lot of the "big data" crowd, the R language is a key part of that. In this presentation, we're going to go over R, starting from the very basics, and examine it from a programmer's perspective: how is it like the languages you use on a regular basis, how is it different, and most of all, how to use it to do some of that slicing and dicing, regardless of how you present it.
