Fanning the Flames: An Unfair Comparison of Python and R in Data Science Applications
June 26, 2019, at 1 pm ET
Overview: In this webinar, Data Scientist and trainer Dr. Ra Inta supplies the fascinating stories of how R and Python originated and an explanation of how they each became so widely adopted in their respective niches. Ra then explores some of the stark and striking differences between Python and R by showcasing a typical Data Science workflow with side-by-side comparisons. This includes a brief tour of importing, cleaning, and manipulating a dataset, before finally feeding it to a statistical model. Ra wraps it up with further comparison for other Data Science related tasks, notably other machine learning applications.
Audience: The intended audience is the interested Data Science greenhorn, who is suffering from the characteristic dilemma of which of these popular tools to choose from. Participants may also be familiar with either R or Python, yet still curious to see which patches on the other side of the fence are greener.

You could tell that our instructor really knew his stuff. We didn't just get the "ivory tower" perspective of how something should ideally be done, but how to apply that when the "real world" gets in the way.
