Ideas for Personal Projects in R


I have decent proficiency in R. I recently participated in a kaggle competetion, organized by analytics edge, with rank in top 25% I want suggestions/ideas on personal portfolio of projects in R, which we can showcase, in an analytics job interview. Some common ideas in my mind are :

  1. Participating in more analytics competitions like kaggle.
  2. Mining social web like twitter on a specific topic, and then running analytics on it.
  3. Integration of R with different tools in Big Data . Accessing data stored in Hadoop/MySql/NoSql from R, running analytics on it, and producing visualization in Tableau.

Would be thankful for more suggestions?


Yes, But one need to practice R a lot to have a grip on it. Are there any free lancing project in r other than kaggle?
