Data science and R meetup

As announced on our meetup page, we had @JaredLander over from New York for a project at BigBoards.  So we rose to the occasion and had him talk about Backends for Big Data in R. This comment from the meetup page, says it all!

Nice fast-paced presentation with style from Jared
Marcel Dumont

To complement this “gentle introduction to R” ;-), our second presentation was given by DataCamp. They introduced us to what DataCamp stands for, how their platform is architected and how teachers write courses (completely in R!). Again, your feedback says more than a thousand words …

This presentation impressed me the most. How a couple of students from the KULeuven can start-up their own company and be successful in filling the gap of training services in R
Jean-Jacques DE CLERCQ

(Hey guys @datacamp, if you are reading this from over there in LA at the use R! conference, can we share your slides here?)

What did you learn? What do you think about this meetup?
