R Package design and development and reproducible data science for biologists (RPKG01)
16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019
This course will help students develop professional R coding skills by leading them through the process of making reproducible, sharable and easily communicated software centered around developing fully functional R packages and extensions. In addition to teaching traditional uses of R packages to share quantitative tools, we’ll also show how R packages can be easily developed for individual research projects to share reproducible results. To develop skills, we’ll build several R packages full of useful and general utility functions that will hone coding skills and teach coding tips through the design of these functions. Each day, we’ll reserve time for open work sessions where students can receive mentoring while applying new skills to developing their own application specific package or refining the packages we’re developing for the course.
