The dplyr ( package for R provides a unified domain-specific language for tabular data. A powerful feature is that it supports multiple sources of tabular data, including data.frames, data.tables, and several dialects of relational database. But data.frames are not databases! How can this work? In this talk, I will dive into the details of how high-level dplyr verbs get translated into SQL, and walk through tips and tricks, optimizations, and gotchas.
