Enterprise pick of the week: R Server is free for developers
Arr! It’s true. There’s a version of Microsoft’s new R Server for big-data analytics that is free to developers who sign up for Microsoft’s free Visual Studio Dev Essentials program.
Codename pick of the week: Mohoro

Beer pick of the week: Ballast Point Victory at Sea Peanut Butter
Take a rich imperial stout with vanilla and coffee beans, add peanut butter. Like the best Reese’s cup you’ve ever had. A really nice version of Ballast Point (San Diego)’s Victory at Sea beer: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/ballast-point-victory-at-sea–peanut-butter/236464/
