Why use R for Data Analysis?

UPDATE: THE BLOG/SITE HAS MOVED TO GITHUB. THE NEW LINK FOR THE BLOG/SITE IS patilv.github.io and THE LINK TO THIS POST IS: http://bit.ly/1k0oHT5. PLEASE UPDATE ANY BOOKMARKS YOU MAY HAVE.

Update: Ramnath, thanks for the fix for the error from rawgithub
.
This was a presentation made to few of my colleagues. The idea was to provide a brief introduction to R, provide few reasons for my switching to it, and give some samples of graphics/interactive visualizations that could be created with minimal coding. Slidify (impressjs framework) was used for putting the presentation together (the coding is imperfect) and the graphs/charts used ggplot2, rCharts, corrplot, healthvis, and PerformanceAnalytics libraries.

Relevant code: https://github.com/patilv/UseR

(The presentation may not show up with the impressjs jazz if the browser is incompatible with it. Apologies in advance.)

    1. Hi, yes, the rawgithub error appears to be coming from the rCharts dependencies. It should be harmless. Please close that and it should work. Thanks for checking.
