J Street Media Center Workshops in Statistical Computing, Data Mining, Text Analysis and Data Visualization
Interested in statistical computing, data mining, text analysis and/or data visualization? Join us for an upcoming workshop on statistical analysis and data expression in R and LaTeX.
"R" is an open source (FREE) and highly flexible, programming language and software environment" that allows for all the processes listed above. Used in a range of disciplines such as computational biology, quantitative finance, sociology, political science and digital humanities. R has become an increasingly popular program for researchers in academic, corporate and non-profit sectors.
LaTeX is a document markup language and document preparation system that allows the author(s) to focus on content rather than visual presentation. LaTeX allows the writer to set up document elements--chapter, section, table, figure, etc.--and go about the business of writing, while LaTeX handles your content's presentation.
