Description

R is a free and open-source statistical computing environment. It has quickly become the leading choice of software used to develop cutting-edge statistical algorithms, innovative visualizations, and data processing, among other key features. R has seen tremendous growth in popularity and functionality over the last decade, largely due to the vibrant and devoted R community of users. Whether you have experience with commercial statistical software such as SAS or SPSS and want to learn R, or getting into statistical computing for the first time, the R-Podcast will provide you with valuable information and advice that will help you to tap into the power of R. Our intent is to start with the basic concepts that can be a struggle for those new to R and statistical computing. We will give practical advice on how to take advantage of R’s capabilities to accomplish innovative and robust data analyses. Along the way we will highlight the additional tools and packages that greatly enhance the experience of using R, and highlight resources that can help people become experts with R. While this podcast is not meant to be a series of lectures on statistics, we will use freely and publicly available data sets to illustrate both basic statistical analyses as well as state-of-the-art algorithms to show how powerful and robust R can be for analyzing today’s explosion of data. In addition to the audio podcast, we will also produce screencasts for hands-on demonstrations for those topics that are best explained via video.

Another spectacular rstudio::conf is in the books and the R-Podcast has tons of insights to share! We kick off our coverage with a three-podcast crossover as I am joined by Credibly Curious co-host Nick Tierny and Not So Standard Deviations co-host Hilary Parker! We discuss our impressions of the conference and where we'd like to see R go in 2019. Plus I share how my journey to the Advanced R-Markdown workshop is a testament to the welcoming and openness that the R community offers.

The R-Podcast's coverage of rstudio::conf 2018 begins! I have the pleasure of speaking with Romain Francois and Thomas Lin Pedersen. You'll hear Romain's thoughts on the growth of Rcpp and the project that helped him become closer to the R community. We also learn about Thomas' journey to enhancing ggplot2 and the new packages he's developed covering network analyses and dynamic APIs from R. I hope you enjoy episode 23 of the R-Podcast!
In this episode of the R-Podcast I have a conversation with my colleague Will Landau about his new R package drake (https://cran.rstudio.com/web/packages/drake/) that provides a powerful build system for analysis pipelines. In addition we have a fun R community roundup, listener feedback, and a couple of package picks to give you a gentle nod and a fun way to explore interpolation. If you have ideas for topics, questions, or other types of feedback, get in touch with me by heading over to the R-Podcast site at www.r-podcast.org (https://www.r-podcast.org), sending a note to thercast[at]gmail.com, or contacting me at @thercast on Twitter. As always thanks for tuning in and I hope you enjoy episode 22 of the R-Podcast!
The R-Podcast concludes its coverage of rstudio::conf by chatting with R Foundation member and Rcpp author Dirk Eddelbuettel! We cover a variety of topics including the state of Rcpp, how the integration of Rcpp in RStudio came about, and his perspective on Linux in the R community. Plus a new batch of listener feedback and a package pick that gives your shiny apps and rmarkdown reports a little more bootstrap polish. Enjoy episode 21 of the R-Podcast!
