A new book by Jeffrey Stanton from Syracuse Iniversity School of Information Studies, An Introduction to Data Science, is now available for free download.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
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.
Good for the newbies :)
