An Introduction to R
R was originally for doing stats, but it now does database CRUD, reporting, documentation, and even websites. It can be awkward to know where to start, so this session fastracks you to the sections you need to know about to save yourself pains you didn't even know you had.
What's new in SQL Server 2014
It's coming, and if you held off from SQL Server 2012 then in all likelihood this'll be your next database upgrade. This session takes you through the reasons why that's a good thing.
On arrival please sign in at the reception desk.
One of the main objectives of the user groups is to introduce new speakers, and here at Cardiff we're always looking for to support anyone who has something interesting to share with the SQL Community. We'll give you all the encouragement and support you need. We're really flexible so if you only want to speak for a shorter amount of time, say 15 mins then this is perfectly fine. If you've been thinking about this, then please get in touch with myself, Steph Locke.
