Today we released Episode 52 on the SQL Data Partners podcast on the R Programming Language. You might remember a few weeks ago the announcement that I was joining Carlos Chacon as the co-host of the weekly podcast.
This weeks podcast was a fun one for me. I have been hearing lots about R for a while, and I wasn’t quite sure what it is or how it integrates with SQL Server. I learned a bit along the way, and want to thank Ginger for sharing her knowledge of R with us.
Listen to learn more about the R programming language
- How R got started and why it’s built the way it is
- How Revolution Analytics transformed R into a useful data science tool
- How the open source version differs from the Revolution Analytics version in SQL Server
- How to use R alongside SQL Server
If you are a regular listener I think you will enjoy this episode. If you are not a regular listener, or haven’t heard the podcast before, give it a try it is very educational, and a great way to keep on on SQL Server topics.
After listening to the podcast is is now challenging to think about R without thinking about pirate jokes.
