Becoming an R developer: the workshop

Learn how to work in an R development team with us on May 31st!

With the 4th and last chapter of our “Introduction to R” learning path we terminate our journey towards building strong R programming foundations and skills.
With the “Become an R Developer” workshop, you will work on an R package and connect your local RStudio project with a local Git repository, you will then host your package on your GitHub repository, set up Continuous Integration (CI) with GitHub Actions, developing it further applying a GitFlow collaborative branching model with Git.

Projects inevitably involve more people, learning the required steps and control for collaborating and delivering a robust product is a must for any team. When working on programming projects with multiple inter-dependencies Version Control (VC) is essential. Even on smaller projects or on your own one, tracking the progress of your development has enough advantages to make the use of VC beneficial. For these reasons knowing how to interact with VC and how to collaborate within a team it is a must for any R developer.

Compared to the past Series this workshop has been split into 2 parts to address the more advanced topics with more time and details.

An online hands-on workshop to learn R by programming R.
