E2E: Erik Meijer and John Cook - R, Statistical Computing, Blogging and More

Sign in to queue


At Lang.NEXT 2012, several conversations happened in the "social room", which was right next to the room where sessions took place. Our dear friend, Erik Meijer, led many interesting conversations, some of which we are fortunate enough to have caught on camera for C9.

Here, Erik interviews John Cook, an applied Mathematician currently working at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center. R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics (see his Lang.NEXT 2012 session on R here). John is an avid blogger.

Tune in. Meet John and learn more about R and how he uses it to solve real world statistical problems in cancer research. You'll also get insights John's consistent sharing of and musings on a wide variety of technical topics. His blog is exceptional.

Thank you Erik and John for this excellent conversation.
