UseR! in the Industry: R’s Place in the Production Environment   

Thanks to the growing business importance of data analysis, R is finding a niche in the software production environment. But this role is not without its challenges. We are a panel of industry experts using R in production. We will give an overview of how R fits in at our companies, highlight key tools, and identify the gaps in the platform. The format will be a 20 minute overview talk followed by a moderated panel Q&A.
