R is a powerhouse tool for every occasion. In this session, we examine how it can be used as a database engine like MySQL or Access. This session will cover the basics of how to use R to organize, query and join data tables. This intermediate session will be linked with Intro to R and use the same Florida data as Intro to R. If all goes well, you will leave with a better understanding of R through the use of a particular database package.

This session is good for: People with some knowledge of R and SQL database programs.
