Getting things logged - Gergely Daroczi

January 30, 2020 Gergely Daroczi
One of the greatest strength of R is the ease and speed of developing a prototype (let it be a report or dashboard, a statistical model or rule-based automation to solve a business problem etc), but deploying to production is not a broadly discussed topic despite its importance. This hands-on talk focuses on best practices and actual R packages to help transforming the prototypes developed by business analysts and data scientist into production jobs running in a secured and monitored environment that is easy to maintain -- discussing the importance of logging, securing credentials, effective helper functions to connect to database, open-source and SaaS job schedulers, dockerizing the run environment and scaling infrastructure.
