RStudio local jobs and remote launcher

August 12, 2019 James Blair

The recent release of RStudio 1.2 introduced the ability to send long-running R scripts to local and remote background jobs. This functionality can dramatically improve the productivity of data scientists and analysts using R since they can continue working in an unblocked R session in RStudio while jobs are running in the background. In this webinar, we will demonstrate common use cases for local and remote background jobs.
