We had a nice , small and slightly quirky Meetup this weekend in New Delhi. Apart from the weekend traffic that ensured almost everyone was late, and a cieling that started dripping with water – we were in Cafe Coffee Day,CP it was enjoyable meeting with the mix of people present including students, people moving away from SAS, IT people who are R curious- who mostly form the backbone of R Meetups here in New Delhi
I presented on
1) R basics including R Commander
2) Hadoop basics including Hortworks Sandbox
3) Tableau Public basics for visualization
4) Slides from my talk last week of Cloud Computing
Overall with 239 Users, this is growing to be a critical and large piece in the traditionally outsourcing hub of NCR, India. With thousands of SAS license users and programmers in Gurgaon and Noida, we hope we can make a difference in promoting open source awareness.
