LA West R Users Group will have our September meeting at WeWork One Culver, 10000 Washington Boulevard Culver City CA 90232.

Speaker: Malcolm Barrett, Ph.D. student in Epidemiology at USC (@malco_barrett)

Title: Functional programming with purrr

Description: One of R’s most powerful features is that it’s a functional programming language. purrr is a consistent and efficient toolkit for programming with functions and working with lists. At its heart is `map()` and friends: functions for the common pattern of iterating over a vector or list, doing something to each element, and then storing the results. These functions let you iterate efficiently and with less code. As Jenny Bryan once said, “of course someone needs to write `for` loops; it doesn’t have to be you.”

Code of Conduct:

6:00-6:45 open door
6:45-7:30 talk starts (45min presentation + Q&A)
