What You'll Learn

Bridging the gap between data science and IT teams is much easier to do than most would think. This two-part webinar with Colin Gillespie from Jumping Rivers will discuss why open source languages are suitable for enterprise data science, and how the data scientist can work with the IT team to get their organizational buy-in.

The first webinar will discuss the big picture of using open source languages and tools in enterprise environments while the second webinar will be a hands-on workshop to gain certain skills for securely putting R in production.

Practical Advice for R in Production, Part 2: How?

The second webinar will be a hands-on workshop where you will learn best practices for securely putting R in production in a way that your IT team would approve of. This includes administering RStudio products, version control with Git, CI/CD pipelines, and even working in containerized environments.
