CDVS Workshop: R for Lunch: Larger than RAM computing with simplified SQL techniques and duckdb


John Little

R for Lunch is a one-hour lunchtime series designed to help people learn R for reproducible computational thinking. R is a data science and data visualization tool which, when combined with RStudio, the Tidyverse, and Quarto, provides a powerful and flexible environment for reproducible research. We explore use cases of manipulating larger than RAM data, leveraging {dplyr} verbs to generate SQL queries, and {DBI} to broker connections to DuckDB. Of interest especially when your R process is running out of memory, or you're interested in a practical application of Composable Data Systems. This event is open to non-Duke participants.
