The R for Data Science workshop series is a four-part course, designed to take novices in the R language for statistical computing and produce programmers who are competent in finding, displaying, analyzing, and publishing data in R.

Part 4: Functions and Packages

Students will be introduced to the principles behind functional programming. Students will learn how to write and import functions, add looped and vectorized computation to their functions, and control the flow of data through a function. Students will understand the basics of namespaces, and how that relates to assigning values within functions. Students will see how to successfully package a function for CRAN.

Knowledge requirements: R for Data Science Parts 1, 2, and 3 or equivalent
