Webcast on Writing Great R Code

While I’m promoting things, you might also want to know that I’m doing a webcast on how to write great R code next Wednesday. It’s at 6pm British Summer Time or 10am Pacific Daylight Time.

the big problem with being a data scientist is that you have to be a statistician and a programmer, which is really two full time jobs, and consequently a lot of hard work. The webcast will cover some tools in R that make the programming side of things much easier.

You’ll get to hear about:

  • Writing stylish code.
  • Finding bad functions with the sig package.
  • Writing robust code with the assertive package.
  • Testing your code with the testthat package.
  • Documenting your code with the roxygen2 package.

It’s going to be pitched at a beginner’s-plus level. There’s nothing hard, but if you haven’t used these four packages, I’m sure you’ll learn something new. Register here.
