If you’re relatively comfortable with R but find yourself needing to level up your skills this day is for you. Whether you’re hitting in-memory constraints, needing the latest and greatest machine learning algorithm, having to code defensively, or simply needing to get more stuff done, you’ll get a lot of this day of training. This hands-on day will equip you with more tools for performing data engineering and data science in R.
We’ll be covering the following:

– Fast and efficient data processing in R with data.table for improved native R performance
– Working with active external connections in dplyr to push data manipulation to databases
– Leveraging functional programming for working with lists, unstructured data objects, and improving error handling
– Going beyond base R statistics with native-R solutions (caret and the tidyverse) and connected solutions (h2o and spark) for better interfaces, new techniques, and working at scale
– Incorporating Python, JavaScript, and C++ into your R code to extend R or leverage already coded solutions easily
