Quirrel is a statistically-oriented language designed principally for data analysis. It combines a purely-declarative, implicitly parallel design with features needed by data scientists. In this presentation, John A. De Goes (chairman of the Quirrel language committee) introduces Quirrel and shows how it can be used to solve problems across large data sets. Over the past 5 years, R has enjoyed tremendous success in the data science community, and for good reason—it comes with batteries loaded, and sports one of the best communities in the data science world. Although R is not an easy programming language to learn, the basics can be picked up rather quickly. In this talk, John A. De Goes walks through the core syntax and features of R, providing enough training to give anyone the ability to do simple analysis.
