Working in the R Ecosystem: Building Applications & Content for Your Gateway
Presented by Derrick Kearney, Software Engineer, RStudio
The R programming language first appeared on the scene in the 1990's as an open source environment for statistical modeling and data analysis. Throughout the last decade, interest in the language has grown alongside researcher's abilities to collect and store larger amounts of data. Today, scientific and business decisions increasingly rely on the interpretation of this data. New libraries for processing data and communicating results are being debuted in ways that break down traditional language silos. Technologies like interactive documents, HTML based applications, and RESTful APIs have exposed capability gaps between R's interfaces for numerical analysis libraries and its built-in ability for graphical display. In this webinar, Derrick Kearney will survey several R libraries that are helping people bridge the gap between their R-based analysis and the numerous ways people are representing results today, all of which can be published on your science gateway, thus extending your research impact to others in a reproducible way.
