In this session, attendees will learn how to use R in the distributed environment of Hadoop using the rmr package. Additionally, the R package googleVis will be used to show how application development teams can incorporate the power of R and the power of Google Chart Tools into their applications quickly and easily. The result is a rich custom data visualization with far less coding than what would otherwise be required. The session will begin by discussing R basics and then moving to concrete examples of statistical analysis on data sets. This will be accompanied by an application development example showing custom visualization of the analysis using googleVis. The application development example will show a browser based app both kicking off the data set analysis using R as well as the visualization of the result. Visualization examples will use both googleVis as well as basic Google Chart Tools. Attendees will leave the session with a concrete example of how to incorporate R into their existing application development practices and how to use Hadoop and its ecosystem to build custom visualizations.
