R Tools for Visual Studio is a new, open source and free tool for R users built on top of the powerful Visual Studio IDE. In this talk, we take you on a tour of its features and show how they can help you be a more productive R user. We look at: integrated debugging support; variable/data frame visualization; plotting and help integration; using the Editor and REPL in concert with each other; RMarkdown and Shiny integration using Microsoft Excel and SQL Server; Extensions and source control. We also demo our R remoting feature that allows developers to execute R code on SQL Server.
