May 27th, 2015 by Tom Johnson

Webinar Invitation
Date: June 10th, 2015
Time: 11:00 AM EDT



You can’t use R for data analysis unless you can get your data into R. Getting your data into R can be a major hassle, so in the last few months Hadley has been working hard to make it easier.

In this webinar Hadley will discuss the places you most often find data (databases, excel, text files, other statistical packages, web apis, and web pages) and the packages (DBI, xml2, jsonlite, haven, readr, exel) that make it easy to get your data into R.

HadleyHadley Wickham – Hadley is Chief Scientist at RStudio and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Rice University. His work includes R packages for data analysis (ggplot2plyrreshape2); packages that make R less frustrating (lubridate for datesstringr for stringshttr for accessing web APIs); and that make it easier to do good software development in R (roxygen2testthat,devtoolslineprofstaticdocs). He is also a writer, educator, and frequent contributor to conferences promoting more accessible and more effective data analysis. GitHub
