R withDatabase and Big Data


R with Database and Big Data is our fifth course of the autumn term. It takes place in November 21-22 in a location close to Milano Lima.
During this course you will see how to connect databases through R, and how to use dplyr with databases. Then you will become familiar with the basic IT infrastructures behind big data, the R toolbox to access and manipulate big data structures, the sparkML libraries for out of memory data modeling and ad hoc techniques for big data visualization. It presents the latest techniques to work with big data within the R environment, which means manipulating, analyzing, visualizing big data structures that exceed the single computer capacity in a true R style.
No previous knowledge of big data technology is required, while a basic knowledge of R is necessary.
