I'll be giving a talk[1] in October to introduce people to GNU-R[2] - a popular and free statistical language and computing environment.
The talk is being hosted by the Manchester Free Software group[3] and will be held at the Madlab[4] on 19/10/10 19:00-20:30.

Naturally I'll be taking questions on the day but if you can think of any particular topics that you would like me to cover then please post a comment with your suggestions.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Robin

@Tom

R is both a computing environment and a language in it's own right.  There are several packages that act as wrappers for C or Fortran.  Loosely speaking you could consider it as a replacement for SPSS (indeed there are packages for importing from/ exporting to this format).

R is a statistical computing environment. I would consider it more similar to Matlab than SPSS or SAS although I could be wrong. R is widely used in several industries and is gaining a lot of momentum in the statistical and analytics commmunities.

Download it and give it a try. I recommend going to the R wiki to learn about getting started and reviewing tutorials and case studies.
