R is the most popular environment and language for statistical analyses, data mining, and machine learning. Managed and scalable version of R runs in SQL Server and Azure ML. Learn how to program in R to squeeze the information from your data.
As being an open source development, R is the most popular analytical engine and programming language for data scientists worldwide. The number of libraries with new analytical functions is enormous and continuously growing. However, there are also some drawbacks. R is a programming language, so you have to learn it to use it. Open source development also means less control over code. Finally, the free R engine is not scalable.
Microsoft added support for R code in SQL Server 2016 and, Azure Machine Learning, or Azure ML, and in Power BI. A parallelized highly scalable execution engine is used to execute the R scripts. In addition, not every library is allowed in these two environments.Attendees of this seminar learn to program with R from the scratch. Basic R code is introduced using the free R engine and RStudio IDE. Then the seminar shows some more advanced data manipulations, matrix calculations and statistical analysis together with graphing options. The mathematics behind is briefly explained as well. Then the seminar switches to more advanced data mining and machine learning analyses. Attendees also learn how to use the R code in SQL Server, Azure ML, and create SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports that use R.
