I would like to thank LinkedIn for letting me speak with some of their data scientists and analysts.
John Mount discussing
SQL generation at LinkedIn.
If you have a group using
R at database or
Spark scale, please reach out ( jmount at win-vector.com ). We (Win-Vector LLC) have some great new tools I’d love to speak on and share. I’d love an invite, especially if your group is in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Note: we also now have a 1/2 to 1 day on-site “Spark for R Users” training offering. Again, please reach out if your team is interested.
Somebody nice reached out and gave us this wonderful feedback on our new Supervised Learning in R: Regression (paid) video course.
Thanks for a wonderful course on DataCamp on
Random forest. I was struggling with
Xgboost earlier and
Vtreat has made my life easy now :).
