Webinar recording: Applications in R

Many thanks to everyone who attended Tuesday's webinar, Applications in R - Success and Lessons Learned from the Marketplace. We had a great turnout and a very lively Q&A session. I've already shared many of the slides describing how companies like Google, Facebook and the New York Times use R, but this is the first time the presentation has been recorded — you can watch in the embedded video below. Revolution Analytics' VP of Professional Services Neera Talbert also joined this presentation, to describe some of the lessons we've learned helping companies implement R in production environments.    You can download the slides (including links to all of the references applications) from the link below.
