Yuriy Goldman, Lead Engineer at Betterment.
Jon Mauney,Data and Behavioral Analyst at Betterment
R is quickly becoming a must-have tool in a data worker's tool-belt. You know its potency for statistical analysis and charting, but did you now that it can serve you well in a light-weight dashboarding and reporting function too?
In this hands-on session, Jon and Yuriy will show you how R can be integrated into an existing agile development environment to enable a workflow by which any R beginner or expert can produce, deploy, and schedule R driven reports and dashboards. No license fees and no proprietary software: just a tiny bit of DevOps elbow grease to create automation against readily available and familiar open source tools.
The walkthrough will deal with the stack currently humming at Betterment (R Studio, S3, Linux, MySQL, GitHub, Jenkins, Confluence, a shell script, Cron), but its quite easy to swap in alternative components to fit your own environment. Its the workflow that matters.
This event will be co-hosted with Big on Data Meetup. Space, food, and drinks will be sponsored by Betterment.
