Creating R Packages (And Other Techniques for Reproducing R Code)

Join us this month to learn how to share your R code with others. If you've ever wanted to allow someone else to run your R code (or perhaps had trouble reproducing your own analysis in R), you'll likely find this talk helpful. We'll review the basics of how to write your R code in scripts that can be re-executed; introduce how to create reproducible reports (PDF or HTML) from your R code that can be shared with others using the 'knitr' package; and show how to create an R package that can be shared on public repositories like CRAN or Bioconductor -- all without leaving RStudio!

Please join your fellow Dallas R User Group members to network and share your R experiences.

    This was very good. I appreciated the time he took to give the background to help us see how it progressed from interactive to packages. The presentation was a good balance of being technical without being too technical. I am very glad I attended.

    Also, "R U Lunching" will take place after the meetup for those who want a chance to talk to their fellow members informally. We started this two months ago and it was a success right out of the box with 10 people attending in the first month and 12 the second. We expect more this time and may have to split into more than one table.

    Location: Dona Lencha, 3455 N. Belt Line, Irving (on the west side of Belt Line, one block north of 183). NOT THE ONE ON STORY RD.,-96.992278&spn=0.004159,0.004356&sll=32.853868,-96.992278&sspn=0.004177,0.004356&hq=Dona+Lencha&t=m&z=18
