Mihailo Joksimovic, Senior Software Engineer @Microsoft is going to support one of the key moments of this edition. Attendees are eager to attend his keynote, May I interest you in…R?, on November 10 on the Web & Mobile Con stage.
“One of the reasons we love going to conferences is to hear and learn something new, right? Therefore, why not learn something completely new? Why don't we learn a bit of… the R language? R is typically used for statistics and machine learning. However, I think it's a shame. It's a shame, because the language is beautiful, has an amazing set of packages and libraries, and is built as a fully functional language. However, you can use OOP if you want." Mihailo Joksimovic, Senior Software Engineer @Microsoft
