Using databases and dplyr to work with data in R


Presenter April 30, 2018.

The ease with which users can interact with databases in R has drastically improved the ease, convenience, and speed with which users can "talk to" larger datasets than it is possible to hold in memory.  Without exaggeration, these new tools are among the most important innovations in the R language in the last 2-3 years.  This talk presents database-centric workflows, covering the "why, what, and how" of working with data from databases in R.  It will also demonstrate how these workflows tie into all the main "communication assets" in an R toolchain - namely RMarkdown documents and Shiny applications.
