Expanding R Horizons: Integrating R with Plumber APIs

October 28, 2020

In this webinar we will focus on using the Plumber package as a tool for integrating R with other frameworks and technologies. Plumber is a package that converts your existing R code to a web API using unique one-line comments. Example use cases will be used to demonstrate the power of APIs in data science and to highlight new features of the Plumber package. Finally, we will look at methods for deploying Plumber APIs to make them widely accessible.
