I will be attending the 2013 OSCON Open Source Convention July 22-26 at the Oregon Convention Center.
Here are a few of the Workshops and Classes I plan to attend:
Ray DiGiacomo, Jr. (Lion Data Systems, LLC)
This hands-on workshop will provide the attendee an introduction to R, an open-source statistical computing environment that some say is even more powerful and flexible than SAS and SPSS. Additionally, the session will also provide and introduction to predictive analytics theory and R’s ability to apply predictive analytics theory to real-world situations.
