Poster #10

Over the last two years, the dplyr package has become very popular in the R community for the way it streamlines and simplifies many common data manipulation tasks. A feature of dplyr is that it’s extensible; by defining new methods, one can make it work with data sources other than those it supports natively. The dplyrXdf package is a backend that extends dplyr functionality to Microsoft R Server’s xdf files, which are a way of overcoming R’s in-memory limitations. dplyrXdf supports all the major dplyr verbs, pipeline notation, and provides some additional features to make working with xdfs easier. In this talk, I’ll share my experiences writing a new back-end for dplyr, and demonstrate how to use dplyr and dplyrXdf to carry out data wrangling tasks on large datasets that exceed the available memory.
