4th R-in-Grenoble working session

on the December 6, 2018

December, 6th, from 16:00 to 18:00
The fourth working session of the Grenoble R community will be about "Manage your workflow with package {drake}". Drinks and snacks are served during the second part of the session.

Each month, the Grenoble R-group organizes one working session of 2 hours, on Thursdays, from 16h-18h, at the Imag building.

Everyone is welcome from beginners to advanced R users. Participants just need to bring their laptop. Presentations or tutorials will last 30 to 60 min, on R topics that can be useful to many people, with practical examples. During the second part of the session, specific problems encountered by participants when coding in R will be discussed.

Drinks and snacks will be shared during the second part of the session.


December 6, 2018: Manage your workflow with package {drake}

    Drake is a general-purpose workflow manager for data-driven tasks. It rebuilds intermediate data objects when their dependencies change, and it skips work when the results are already up to date. Not every runthrough starts from scratch, and completed workflows have tangible evidence of reproducibility. Package drake also supports scalability, parallel computing, and a smooth user experience when it comes to setting up, deploying, and maintaining data science projects.
