The drake R package is a general-purpose workflow manager for data-driven tasks in R. drake rebuilds intermediate data objects when their dependencies change, and it skips work when the results are already up to date. Not every run through starts from scratch, there is native support for parallel and distributed computing, and completed workflows have tangible evidence of reproducibility. This presentation introduces drake using a simple practical example from the social sciences.
