Our August meetup will feature a talk on creating R packages, by Brian Diggs!

Creating a package in R using devtools and roxygen2

One strength of R is its built in support for extending functionality using packages. Packages have specific structure and tools built to enforce some documentation and testing; these lead to a better final product but create a higher hurdle for package creation, especially the first time when the conventions are being learned. This talk will walk through all the steps of creating a package including fulfilling the documentation and testing requirements (and options), resulting in a package that can be distributed and installed by others. A combination of standard tools as well as those provided by the devtools and roxygen2 packages will be used.
