Last week I gave a talk on the R statistics system and Perl for the Pittsburgh Perl Mongers. The example that threaded through the talk was something I have written about here before, extracting useful information from the Internet Movie Database. If you’ve read my earlier blog post or have used the Grand Unified IMDB Movie Rating Decoder Ring, you might find the slides from the talk interesting. They provide some more details about the R and Perl code used to analyze the IMDB data and create the decoder ring.
