Workshop: Build an R package

view cart button

Build your first R package, document and test it

Professionalize the way you work with R and pave your way towards a production-ready code.

Follow the best standards, and build an R package properly using the development toolkit provided by the R ecosystem, learn how to document it, face the importance of having robust testing in a package and tackle tricky problems like package dependencies.

Make the transition away from R scripting and package your code to obtain a robust product.

Yes, if you know how to program in R and you would like to package your work.

Prerequisites: experience with R is required, although none with building packages. This workshop is the natural continuation of “Programming R”, and it is a must for attending “Becoming an R developer”.
