Introduction to R for Data Science

R programming is one of the most popular programming languages used in Data Science. Known for its simplicity and easy to take off working environment, R has been the language of choice of many non-programmers and its Rich ecosystem enables it to perform variety of Data Science related tasks. The objective of this workshop is to help you get started with R for you to move forward with your Data Science journey. As we are moving into the world of language-agnostic developers, Even if you know a language already, knowing another extra programming language like R would add an extra feather to your cap.

    Language Wars have always been there for ages and it's got a new candidate with Data science booming - R vs Python. While the fans are fighting R vs Python, the creators (Hadley Wickham (Chief DS @ RStudio) and Wes McKinney (Creator of Pandas Project)) are working together as Ursa Labs team to create open source data science tools. A similar effort by RStudio has given birth to Reticulate (R Interface to Python) that helps programmers combine R and Python in the same code, session and project and create a new kind of super hero.

    Case Study
    Beginner

    As kids, we always enjoyed stories. Some scary, some holy, some imbibing moral values & some just for fun.

    Analytics is fun when you approach it with passion and curiosity. I know this because I have done this. With few case studies, I wish to illuminate your wits about Analytics and how it is being actively used in Banking and Financial Sector.

    Come join me for a fun ride.

    For many of the researchers and data scientists, Jupyter Notebooks are the de-facto platform when it comes to quick prototyping and exploratory analysis. Right from Paul Romer- the Ex-World bank chief Economist and also the co-winner 2018 Nobel prize in Economics to Netflix, Jupyter Notebooks are used almost everywhere. The browser-based computing environment, coupled with a reproducible document format has made them the choice of tool for millions of data scientists and researchers around the globe. But have we fully exploited the benefits of Jupyter Notebooks and do we know all about the best practises of using it? if not, then this talk is just for you.

    Through this talk/demo, I'll like to discuss three main points:

    1. Best Practises for Jupyter Notebooks since a lot of Jupyter functionalities sometimes lies under the hood and is not adequately explored. We will try and explore Jupyter Notebooks’ features which can enhance our productivity while working with them.
    2. In this part, we get acquainted with Jupyter Lab, the next-generation UI developed by the Project Jupyter team, and its emerging ecosystem of extensions. JupyterLab differs from Jupyter Notebook in the fact that it provides a set of core building blocks for interactive computing (e.g. notebook, terminal, file browser, console) and well-designed interfaces for them that allow users to combine them in novel ways. The new interface enables users to do new things in their interactive computing environment, like tiled layouts for their activities, dragging cells between notebooks, and executing markdown code blocks in a console and many more cool things.
    3. Every tool/features come with their set of pros and cons and so does Jupyter Notebooks/Lab and it is equally important to discuss the pain areas along with the good ones.

    The Buzzword "Analytics" gives a feeling of "Black Box" to most of us and it seems to scare a lot of people. As an experienced Banking professional, with my talk, I aim to Break-Analytics-Down by unveiling the utilities of Analytics in Banking as you learn how deeply it is prevalent amidst us.
