Title: How to write R packages
Speaker: Dongyi (Lambda) Lu, Graduate student at Caltech

Abstract: Package ecosystems like CRAN and Bioconductor makes R a powerful tool in data analysis across fields. Writing packages is a great way to share code and to reuse code ourselves. In fact, writing R packages is not as difficult as some may expect thanks to integration of devtools, roxygen2, and git into RStudio. In this meetup, we will learn the basic structure of R packages, get started with git, write a minimal package with roxygen2 documentation, and get it to pass R CMD check. If time permits, we will also cover Bioconductor package requirements.

We'll have food at 6, and the presentation will start at 7. Hope to see you there!
