Welcome to the October 2014 Newsletter. If you missed our announcement this morning, here's the big news: Revolution R Open is now available for free download. Learn more about our new enhanced, open source R distribution on MRAN, Managed R Archive Network. Do you want some technical support with that?

This session will demonstrate how the all-star line-up featuring R and Storm enables real-time processing on massive data sets; a real home run! The presenters will use actual baseball data and a real-world use case to compose an implementation of the use case as Storm components (spouts, bolts, etc.) and highlight how R can be an effective tool in prototyping a solution. Attendees will leave the session with information that could easily be applied for other use cases such as video game analytics, fraud detection, intrusion detection, and consumer propensity to buy calculations.

In this webinar we will be discussing the new R distribution from Revolution Analytics. Revolution R Open is a downstream distribution of R from the R Foundation, and includes additional features focused on performance and reproducibility of R scripts.
