Analyzing Big Data using the R Language

Next: Big Data Questions that need to be answered UP: TOC

IT is not only about computers, it all about data. In my worklife I've spent almost 30 years in the IT industry. During these years I have always enjoyed work with data.

30 years ago data were on punch card, tapes and disk had a capacity of 20MB. On those media data were stored in sequential files or indexed files. Relational databases come up and are still used widely today.

Now I'd like to explore new frontiers with big data and analyzing data. It's is like connecting the dots or following the dots as Steve Jobs used to say in his 2005 Stanford Commencement Speech.
