Download Materials


dplyr 0.7.0 is a major release including over 100 bug fixes and improvements. dplyr provides a “grammar” of data transformation, making it easy and elegant to solve the most common data manipulation challenges. dplyr supports multiple backends: as well as in-memory data frames, you can also use it with remote SQL databases. There are two big changes:

  • Improved tools for connecting to databases
  • Tidyeval, a new framework for programming with dplyr

In this webinar, you’ll learn about both of these big new features, and along the way you’ll see a bunch of smaller features, and learn about some other changes in the tidyverse.
