Do you have code you are using repeatedly? Do you need to scale projects beyond personal use? We can help! We’ll cover the general workflow of turning raw code into R software, with overviews of the following:

  1. Implementing sound design principles
  2. Creating a robust R package
  3. Using GitHub for version control and distribution

We will discuss tips and tricks (including our epic fails) for getting started on your software development journey.
