Easy and fast analysis of data is an uphill task for any Rubyist today. Ruby has been mostly restricted to web development and scripting, until now. In this talk we will have a look at daru, a gem from the Ruby Science Foundation specifically developed for simplifying data analysis tasks for Rubyists.
You will learn how you can use daru for analyzing large data sets and get a tour of daru being coupled with other Ruby tools like pry, iruby and nyaplot for interactive and standalone data analysis and plotting for gaining quick insights into your data — all with a few lines of Ruby code.
