Learning R through sports, or learning sports through R

Presented by: Mike Roznik
Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Big data has been a buzzword for years, but it’s only recently been hitting the world of professional sports. How do sports teams use this big data? Why with R! Together we’ll learn what kind of data they look for and how they present it. Along the way we’ll look at real world examples of R code interpreting, calculating and presenting sports data. You’ll get an overview of the cool things you can do with R and many places where you can start using it with available data sets, or your own.
