1L How many using R and any benefits from it? 2: Anyone using Splunk for big data that has become the search engine for IT?

1. Not using R (yet)
2. Love Splunk. It was very easy to set it up and get instant insight into what’s going on in the company.

R is fantastic, though I’m not using it daily (yet). I’ve been able to do basic segmentation, explore distributions, make basic graphs and do basic GIS analysis. I’ve done a logistic regression (1) – but this isn’t a tool i’m super familiar with, so haven’t played with it too much.

With instructors for some recent statistics graduate courses I took, it is the preferred analysis environment and rivals SAS, in amount of use. Most recently, I have used it for my own research in survival analysis.

 

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
