Giving practical advice on how to use R for powerful and innovative data analyses.

The R-Podcast Episode 20: More interviews from rstudio::conf with Javier Luraschi and Garrett Grolemund

In episode 20 I'm happy to bring you more great interviews with members of RStudio from rstudio::conf! I had the pleasure of chatting with software engineer Javier Luraschi to discuss Apache Spark and the new sparklyr package that allows R users to connect directly to a Spark cluster for high-performance data analyses. In addition you will hear from RStudio's master instructor Garret Grolemund to get his recommendations for teaching R and the highly-acclaimed R for Data Science book. All of this plus a package pick that could enable me to use R in my podcast workflow in episode 20 of the R-Podcast!
