"R is well known in the world of Big Data and is increasing in popularity. A number of very useful resources are available for anyone undertaking data mining in R.
For example, Luis Torgo has just published a book called Data Mining with R – learning with case studies (Torgo, Luis. Data Mining with R. ), and presents a set of four case studies with accompanying data sets and code which the interested student can work through. Torgo’s book provides the usual analytic and graphical techniques used every day by data miners, including specialized visualization techniques, dealing with missing values, developing prediction models, and methods for evaluating the performance of your models.
Also of interest to the data miner is the Rattle (R Analytical Tool to Learn Easily) GUI. Rattle is a data mining facility for analyzing very large data sets. It provides many useful statistical and graphical data summaries, presents mechanisms for developing a variety of models, and summarizes the performance of your models.
Another web-site worth reading is the following:
