With the increase in people using R for data science comes an associated increase in the number of people and organisations wanting to put models or other analytic code into "production". We often hear it said that R isn’t suitable for production workloads, but is that true? In this talk, Mark will look at some of the misinformation around the idea of what "putting something into production" actually means, as well as provide tips on overcoming the obstacles put in your path.
