PASS Summit–Lightning Talk on R

I’m excited to have the opportunity to speak at PASS Summit 2018. I am doing a quick 10 minute lightning talk on R integration with Power BI. Somehow I was able to sneak in with this incredible group of speakers! SHHHHH, don’t tell anyone lest they find out!


I have loaded my slide deck here, this includes what you need to get started with R! Slide Deck

In this talk I am focusing on how R can be used to extend the capabilities and functionality of Power BI. More specifically, I will be using R to show the following four demos:

  • How to extract data from Power BI using R
  • How to unzip and process files with R
  • How to Download, unzip and process files
  • How to check if file exist before processing the file

Also, I have created blog posts with corresponding YouTube videos already on 3 of the 4 demos listed above!
