We’re hitting R a million times a day so we made a talk about it - Heather Nolis & Dr. Jacqueline Nolis

January 30, 2020 Heather Nolis
Often reserved for Elite Engineers, production can be a perilous place for R users - but never fear! For the past year, we at T-Mobile have been sludging through production outages, nation-wide product launches, and all of the muck that floods from R models being hit over a million times every day. From “we’re strictly a java shop” to a devops team that proudly states “we support Java, node, and R,” this talk will cover the technical hiccups, interdisciplinary communication struggles, and an open-source R package {loadtest} that’s changed the way our team views performance testing. You too can dazzle your enterprise with the power of R.
