SQL Saturday 524 Slides – Analytical Computing – Device to Cloud and Back

Hello World!

Here you can find the slide deck for my talk for SQL Saturday #524 in South Florida.  I hope you find this useful, but it should be far more useful if you attend in person.  This talk lays the foundation for building and understanding analytical computing for cloud and devices as well as how they work together.

Battle of the Programming Languages

Hello World!

So this article is to help provide some guidance around which programming language to use.  Note that this article is specifically geared towards delivering code in which intelligence and information is the soul of the product.  In this day and age, that should be every product.

I want to preface this article with a few things

  1. This is an excerpt from a paper I wrote for internal use of my own volition.  As this is the case, I was able to remove all confidential information and publish my findings.
  2. I only analyzed F#, C#, R and Python.  I know there are more, but I picked the top dogs, but F# had some special circumstances that I felt it belonged.

Intro to Data Manipulation with R

Hello World,

Here is a recorded version of an in-person training I have been doing.  Enjoy.  I end up coming back to this myself even for reference.

This episode is all about performing data manipulation to derive raw insights from your data using the R programming language.  Data manipulation is the core to anything and everything you do in business intelligence and machine learning.  This episode sets the base for all R based intelligence sessions from here on out.

Part 1: Introduction to Microsoft R Open.

Part 2: Introduction to R Data Structures

Part 3: Data Manipulation with R

Part 4: Beautiful Visualizations with R
