Polyglots for Data Science #python #sas #r #stats #spss #matlab #julia #octave

In the future I think analysts need to be polyglots- you will need to know more than one language for crunching data.

SAS, Python, R, Julia,SPSS,Matlab- Pick Any Two ;) or Any Three.

No, you can’t count C or Java as a statistical  language :) :)

Efforts to promote Polyglots in Statistical Software are-

1) R for SAS and SPSS Users (free or book)

2) R for Stata Users (book)

3) SAS and R (blog and book)

4) Using Python and R together

Probably we need a Python and R for Data Analysis book- just like we have for SAS and R books.

5) Matlab   and R

Reference (http://mathesaurus.sourceforge.net/matlab-python-xref.pdf ) includes Python

5) Octave and R

package http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/RcppOctave/vignettes/RcppOctave.pdf includes Matlab

reference http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/R-and-octave.txt

6) Julia and python

  • PyPlot uses the Julia PyCall package to call Python’s matplotlib directly from Julia

7) SPSS and Python is here

8) SPSS and R is as below

  • The Essentials for R for Statistics versions 22, 21, 20, and 19 are available here.
  • This link will take you to the SourceForge site where the Version 18 Essentials and Plugins are hosted.

     

9) Using R from Clojure – Incanter

Use embedded R from Clojure and Incanter http://github.com/jolby/rincanter
