Cloud Computing for Christmas

My second book – R for Cloud Computing : An Approach for Data Scientists is now ready for sale ( ebook). Softcover should be available within a month. Some of you have already booked an online review copy. It has taken me 2 years to write this book, and as always I accept all feedback on how to be a better writer.

I would like to especially thank Hannah Bracken of Springer Publishing for this.

and I dedicate this book to my 7 year son Kush.

Running Proc Nice

It has been brought to my attention Through a LinkedIN message) that I have not been playing nice to people who have always been nice to me. I apologize. I am neither pro or anti open source  as of now in 2014, but I do like good software. I like the freedom that developer editions give. Since I dont code in C, Jave , C++ , showing me source code or not is of little use. I also dislike bullshit by some companies that take free code from open source community as an excuse to subsidize their research and development costs, but are selective about sharing both profits and code with the creators. People who create should be respected, and paid. Atleast more than talkative photogenic bloggers. I need to work on my anger management (not with Charlie Sheen). At 37 yrs old I cant afford to piss off people just because I am the cool hacker boy round the block. Regards, Ajay Ohri cc- http://poemsforkush.com/ http://todayilearntincanada.wordpress.com/
