6:00 pm: Ella Kaye ( -- Turning your PhD (or other research project!) into an R package

7:00 pm: Pizza and wine!


In this talk, I will try to convince you that if you have any of your own data or write any of your own R functions, then you should put them into an R package. Benefits include reproducibility and keeping everything together and accessible. Also, it’s really easy to do, and to prove it, I will build a package from scratch before your very eyes. I will also introduce the bookdown package for writing reports and even your thesis. Filled with tips and tricks from my own experiences, this talk could save you hours!


Oxford RUG is thrilled to be sponsored by Mango Solutions. Thanks to their generosity, there will be pizza from Franco Manca and wine after the meeting. When RSVPing, please answer the question whether you will be staying for pizza (so we get a sense how much pizza to order).
