    • We really hope you can make these talks.

  • On the “R for big data” front we have some big news: the replyr package now implements pivot/un-pivot (or what tidyr calls spread/gather) for big data (databases and Sparklyr). This data shaping ability adds a lot of user power. We call the theory “coordinatized data” and the work practice “fluid data”.
