Hopping into R

January 22, 2014 - by Ben Wen

With the new [Joyent Manta R SDK](https://github.com/joyent/mantaRSDK) we're diving into the R community, so we're honored to be included in the [R-Bloggers](http://www.r-bloggers.com) blog [here](http://www.r-bloggers.com/r-users-meet-joyent-manta-manta-users-meet-r/). We hope to have more R and statistics posts there. The packages' author, Dr. Christopher Hogue has been a great addition to the Joyent team, given his experience as running large-scale bioinformatics research, among many talents. Speaking of the area of data analytics, he will be hosting a live webinar on the use of the R SDK. That SDK lets R language users run very large Map/Reduce invocations in the cloud without any set up or maintenance. It can also store large datasets in a logical manner. And it's billed by the second. Sign up for the webinar [here](http://www.joyent.com/company/events/big-data-analytics-r-users-meet-joyent-manta). Hope to see you there!
