Democratizing R with Plumber APIs - James Blair

The Plumber package provides an approachable framework for exposing R functions as HTTP API endpoints. This allows R developers to create code that can be consumed by downstream frameworks, which may be R agnostic. In this talk, we’ll take an existing Shiny application that uses an R model and turn that model into an API endpoint so it can be used in applications that don’t speak R.
