Free e-book on Data Science with R

Free e-book on Data Science with R | Big Data Analysis in the Clouds | Scoop.it
A new book by Jeffrey Stanton from Syracuse Iniversity School of Information Studies, An Introduction to Data Science, is now available for free download.
Pierre Levy's insight:

Throughout the book, you'll find many examples of data science applications implemented in the R language. For R beginners a Getting Started with R chapter is included, but it does get into some fairly in-depth topics including sentiment analysis of Twitter data, working with data in Hadoop via RHadoop, and creating information maps. R code is sprinkled liberally for your own use, and available to download (also under an open-source license) from GitHub.
