Everybody knows that if you’re serious about data science, you’ve supposed to be using R. But then you try to get started and all you seem to be able to do is futz around this with this mysterious mtcars data set. Sure, you tried importing your data by clicking on that “Import Dataset” button, but surely you don’t have to do that every single time your data changes? And now that I’ve done some analysis, how do I get this data back out? We’ll look at a bunch of different ways to push data into and out of R, and how you can set up your own workflows so that you can spend your brainpower on analysis, instead of on the day to day stuff.

This webinar is worth (1) CFRE point.
