Came to this article because of the subject line and hoping to learn more about what R is and how to use it. But with only a small snippet of code being shown, I didn't learn anything except that there is some function called chi-squared. Perhaps you could link to some background reference material with more info about R itself?

A shame that this wasn't what you were looking for. For an intro to R, perhaps a quick Google for things like this:

Statistics + R: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/IPSUR/vignettes/IPSUR.pdf
Basic visualisation in R: http://www.computerworld.com/article/2497304/business-intelligence-beginner-s-guide-to-r-painless-data-visualization.html

I'm a DBA who has been exploring R. I have taken a class in R. This article helps to put R into practical use. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the comment! Lol I understand where you're coming from - there is a big step from "coding some R" and "using R for real". Hard work, but exciting Smile

Nick, this was a helpful and insightful post. I'm new to R and working with it in VS/RTVS, would Shiny be the mechanism by which you surface your data in R? If so would Shiny be akin to htmlwidgets? Id like to follow along and re create this in R, I assume your just assembling the data set as a data frame and surfacing through the app, if not any guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you for your efforts and contribution to this topic

Hi Vinnie,

You're absolutely right - Shiny, like HTMLWidgets, is just a presentation layer. An awesome presentation layer! The actual dataset is on the UCI Machine Learning repository (https://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets/Pittsburgh+Bridges), and if you can tolerate my entirely undocumented code, check out my GitHub (https://github.com/nickb-/SQLUserGroup/tree/master/PatternRecognition_PittsburghBridges) Smile

Thank you for the follow-up and insight Nick, and I appreciate the GitHub resource. Speaking of Pittsburgh, Go Steelers!
