Naive Principal Component Analysis in R

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a technique used to find the core components that underlie different variables. It comes in very useful whenever doubts arise about the true origin of three or more variables. There are two main methods for performing a PCA: naive or less naive. In the naive method, you first check some conditions in your data which will determine the essentials of the analysis. In the less-naive method, you set the those yourself,…

Using R and Google’s keyword planner to evaluate size and competitiveness of international markets

About two months ago there was  new SaaS product, the Keyword Hero. It’s the only solution to “decrypt” the organic keywords in Google Analytics that users searched for in order to get to one’s website. We do so by buying lots of data off sources such as plugins and matching the data with our customers’ sessions in Google Analytics (side note: the entire algorithm was coded in R before we refactored it in Python to allow scalability and operability with AWS).

 

Using Keyword…

Dashboards in R

This is a tutorial to show how to implement dashboards in R, using the new "flexdashboard" library package.

this new library leverages these libraries and allows us to create some stunning dashboards, using interactive graphs and text. What I loved the most, was the “storyboard” feature that allows me to present content in Tableau-style frames. Please note that for this you need to create RMarkdown (.Rmd) files and insert the code using the…

R for hackers

Last Sunday at Trivadis Tech Event, I talked about R for Hackers. It was the first session slot on Sunday morning, it was a crazy, nerdy topic, and yet there were, like, 30 people attending! An emphatic thank you to everyone who came!

R a crazy, nerdy topic, - why that, you'll be asking? What's so nerdy about using R?

Well, it was about R. But it was neither an introduction ("how to get things done quickly with R"), nor was it even about data science. True, you…
