Building R packages with Rstudio and GitHub
The course guides through the process of building and R package using the RStudio tool chain, starting from conceptualization until publication. We will provide example data and code, but encourage the students to bring their own data and code.
After this course, students will
1. understand the structure of R packages and the process of building them
2. be familiar with the up-to-date toolchain to provide R code and data as package via CRAN
3. be familiar with common tools for packaging, including roxygen2, devtools, and GitHub
Familiarity with R and basic understanding of R-coding is required
