CCT Data Science Workshop Wednesdays - Wrangling larger-than-memory data in R


11 a.m. to noon, April 24, 2024

R is a powerful tool for data wrangling, but can slow down or outright crash if your dataset exhausts your available computer memory. This workshop will cover new tools that will let you continue to use familiar data wrangling tools in R with larger-than-memory data, including the arrow and duckdb packages. Participants should be familiar with R. Familiarity with the R tidyverse, and/or having an example dataset in mind, are both beneficial but not necessary!
