RStudio: A Single Home for R & Python

An RStudio webinar presentation

Sean Lopp & Lou Bajuk

Live on: February 3rd, 2021 at 1 PM ET

What You'll Learn

Many Data Science teams today leverage both R and Python in their work, but struggle to use them together. Data Science leaders and their business partners find it difficult to make key data science content easily discoverable and available for decision-making, while IT Admins and DevOps engineers grapple with how to efficiently support these teams without duplicating infrastructure. Even experienced data scientists familiar with both languages often struggle to combine them without painful context switching and manual translations.

In this webinar, you will learn how RStudio helps organizations tackle these challenges, with a focus on some of the recent additions to our products that have helped deepen the happy relationship between R and Python:

Easily combine R and Python in a single Data Science project using a single IDE.

Leverage a single infrastructure to launch and manage Jupyter Notebooks, JupyterLab, VSCode and the RStudio IDE, while giving your team easy access to Kubernetes and other resources.

Share and manage access to R- and Python-based interactive applications, dashboards, and APIs, all in a single place.
