How to join this free online event with Will Landau, Eric Scott and Joel Nitta.

The {targets} package is a pipeline tool for Statistics and data science in R. With {targets}, you can maintain a reproducible workflow without repeating yourself. {targets} learns how your pipeline fits together, skips costly runtime for tasks that are already up to date, runs only the necessary computation, supports implicit parallel computing, abstracts files as R objects, and shows tangible evidence that the results match the underlying code and data.

On this call Will, Eric and Joel will share their experience putting {targets} into action. Eric will share with us Using {targets} with HPC and Joel will talk about Using {targets} for bioinformatics pipelines, then Will will demonstrate Debugging {targets} pipelines.

See below for speaker bios and resources.
