EmbRace R

Summary:

R is the most popular environment and language for statistical analyses, data mining, and machine learning. Managed and scalable version of R runs in SQL Server and Azure ML. Learn how to program in R to squeeze the information from your data.

Abstract:

As being an open source development, R is the most popular analytical engine and programming language for data scientists worldwide. The number of libraries with new analytical functions is enormous and continuously growing. However, there are also some drawbacks. R is a programming language, so you have to learn it to use it. Open source development also means less control over code. Finally, the free R engine is not scalable.

Microsoft added support for R code in SQL Server 2016 and, Azure Machine Learning, or Azure ML, and in Power BI. A parallelized highly scalable execution engine is used to execute the R scripts. In addition, not every library is allowed in these two environments.

Attendees of this seminar learn to program with R from the scratch. Basic R code is introduced using the free R engine and RStudio IDE. Then the seminar shows some more advanced data manipulations, matrix calculations and statistical analysis together with graphing options. The mathematics behind is briefly explained as well. Then the seminar switches more advanced data mining and machine learning analyses. Attendees also learn how to use the R code in SQL Server, Azure ML, and create SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports that use R.

Modules:

  • Introduction to R
    • Data overview and manipulation
    • Basic and advanced visualizations
    • Data mining and machine learning methods
    • Scalable R in SQL Server
    • Using R in SSRS, Power BI, and Azure ML

    Python for SQL Server Specialists

    Summary

    Although R is the most popular environment and language for statistical analyses, data mining, and machine learning, Python as a more general language might be even more popular. Lately, Python is more widely used for data science as well. SQL Server 2017 adds support for running Python code inside the Database Engine.

    Abstract

    Python is more organized language than R. In last years, many data analytics libraries for Python evolved, and thus Python is catching up with R even in the data science area. Microsoft added support for Python code in SQL Server in version 2017. Now you can use either R or Python inside the Database Engine for advanced tasks like predictive analytics. Therefore, you can use the language that suits you better. Statisticians and mathematicians might prefer R, while developers tend to be more Python oriented.

    Attendees of this seminar learn to program with Python from the scratch. Basic Python code is introduced using the Python engine installed with SQL Server 2017 and Visual Studio 2017. The seminar shows some more advanced data manipulations, matrix calculations and statistical analysis together with graphing options. The mathematics behind is briefly explained as well. Then the seminar switches to more advanced data mining and machine learning analyses.

    Modules:

    • Data overview and manipulation
    • Basic and advanced visualizations
    • Data mining and machine learning methods
    • Scalable Python in SQL Server
