Presented by: Damjan VukcevicYou have developed a new statistical method. Now it is time to share it with the world. The methods that actually get used in practice are those with readily available and user-friendly implementations. Writing and disseminating software is therefore a key skill for modern statisticians, one that is generally not taught widely. This course aims to fill the gap. The R software environment is widely used for statistical analyses. One of its distinguishing features is the extensive range of R ‘packages’, which anyone can write and share via the internet. This used to be an intimidating process but modern tools have made it simple.
We begin our course with how to write a very basic package, and then show how to include documentation, examples and data. Further topics include: an efficient development workflow, managing relationships between packages, sharing your packages with others, and easy ways to manage packages (finding, installing, upgrading).
