The first step of any data analysis is importing data, but for tables in a database this can be a surprisingly challenging step that takes analysts out of their workflow. The dbcooper package turns a database connection into a collection of accessor functions, letting users take advantage of autocomplete as they browse a database in the same ways they would engage with local tables. I'll walk through how dbcooper can be used to build a database-specific package, whether for an organization's internal use or to wrap a public data source. The dbcooper package supports both R (built on top of dbplyr) and Python (built on top of siuba), and in either language makes it easy and intuitive to extract insights from a database.
