S3 Class - An Introduction to S3 Classes in R

S3 classes are baked in to R; their influence permeates the language and how we interact with it.  This brief talk will introduce S3 classes, and why they are relevant to all R users.  We will cover their definition, interpretation, construction, and manipulation.

Andrew Robinson is deputy director of ACERA and senior lecturer in applied statistics at the University of Melbourne.  He is co-author of 2.95 books on R: "Forest Analystics with R" and "Introduction to Scientific Programming and Simulation Using R", and the hopefully soon to be completed "Methods of Statistical Model Estimation".

    Well presented talk with enough information to be interesting but not so much as to be overwhelming. Engaging speaker, pleasant venue. Thanks to both Andrew for his time and Jeromy for organizing.

    Andrew is a very entertaining presenter with a thorough knowledge of R. He also has great knowledge of statistics. I enjoyed his presentation and learned a lot.
    There is a good discussion of S3 classes in section 8.4 of one of Andrew's books: 'Scientific programming and simulation using R'

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
