Clark Fitzgerald on R and the Shell

For our first presentation of the quarter, UC Davis Data Science Initiative affiliate Clark Fitzgerald talked to us about tasks that integrate R and the Shell. From Clark:

“I’ll provide some motivation and examples of integrating R with the command line, including tools like Rscript, system2(), and commandArgs(). If users have specific tasks or questions please bring them and we’ll work on them together.”

The GitHub repo with all of the materials and scripts used for this talk can be found here.

Here’s the video! Note that the talk starts about a minute in to the feed.
