Running your Rscript in the Cloud

Life as member of a data team is awesome but as a lone data scientist in a small company one might have to be a data engineer, IT consultant and data scientist all-in-one. How does one get R scripts to run?
In this talk, Roel hopes to inspire lone data scientists on all the ways they can run R scripts using Cloud providers. He will cover from simple to more advanced use-cases for running R in the Cloud. Finally, Roal will also discuss how to cooperate with IT departments for the most efficient results.
