Plumber is an open-source R package that converts your existing R code into a web API; this enables you to leverage your R code from other platforms or programing languages. You could use Plumber to embed a graph created in R in a website, or to run a forecast on some data from a Java application.

In this webinar, we’ll introduce the basics of Plumber and walk through the creation of a web API from scratch. We’ll then talk about intermediate techniques and what’s next for Plumber.
