Package Development in R
Date and time: Tuesday 7th September 2021, 2pm-5pm BST
Level – Intermediate
The Package Development in R workshop is aimed at R programmers who are looking to add rigour to their development by building R packages in a controlled, scalable and commercially viable manner. Attendees will learn the state of the art for designing, building and maintaining R packages. The workshop will maintain a practical and current focus using popular R packages such as devtools, roxygen2 and testthat.
• Participants should have a good working knowledge of the R language but
experience of package building will not be assumed
• Participants should have a recent version of R installed and, if working on a
Windows Desktop they must have an appropriate version of Rtools installed.
Registrants will be provided with a list of R packages to install prior to the workshop.

• Generation of help files with roxygen2
