R code management

Ivan Hanigan will talk about ProjectTemplate.  This is a new package on CRAN aimed at standardising how code is managed for an analysis. Others may wish to comment on how they manage their analyses, whether they find ProjectTemplate an appropriate standard, and if so, in what circumstances.

Package on CRAN: http://cran.r-project...
Description at: http://www.johnmylesw...


Joseph Guillaume will give an overview of github and r-forge for R code management.  A possible alternative is to give examples go how unmanageable code can get!

    Thanks Ivan. I valued the opportunity to see how you structure your workflow. It definitely made me reconsider how I structure my analyses.

    Thanks for your talks Ivan and Joe. Unfortunately, I had to go to another meeting and couldn't stay for the rest of the discussion.

    I follow a similar method to Ivan. For sweaving, I have a folder for each part of a paper (intro, method etc) and within in those the func, load, clean, do folders. I pull it all together using source(). Saving and loading, eg save(), load() etc, also speeds things up. I'd be interested to learn about the package.

    I'll be presenting a few slides on workflow, code management, and so on at the December 2010 meetup. But it's a big topic with a wide range of approaches. Thus, It'd be great to see more on this in the future.

    I like this. In my projects I settled recently on 3 main folders: 1-data, 2-analysis and 3-document. Within the first two (1-data - ie preprocessing with diagnostics and 2-analysis - ie methodically torturing the data) I follow the Stack Overflow discussion: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1429907/workflow-for-statistical-analysis-and-report-writing = Functions, Load, Clean, Do. In document I just keep a Sweave document and copy across images or tables for inclusion from 1 or 2 above.
