Andrea Coffey spoke about the R programming language.

Then Glen Kleidon gave an impromptu presentation on creating certificates for development.

‘R’ is a specialised programming notation for statistical analysis. Andrea had stumbled across references to ‘R’ and thought it time to investigate further. We looked at some analysis of a set of real-life numbers, and talked about some of the aspects of ‘R’ from a reasonably high level.

Some R references:
“The R Inferno” by Patrick Burns – www.burns-stat.com/pages/Tutor/R_inferno.pdf
“The Art of R Programming” by Norman Matloff, No Starch Press
“The R Language for Programmers” by John Cook

Glen’s Batch Scripts to create a Self Signed Certificate Authority and Sign Certificates.
These scripts were created primarily for Software development purposes – in particular Delphi Indy web server certificates but can be used for NodeJS or any purpose really.

The meeting was held at the Melbourne Men’s Shed, situated in the Federation Square Car Park off the Russell St Extension.
