R Meetup - Building an R package

Last night the Connecticut R Users Group had an Meetup on how to build an R package. It was a small group which was great because it was a very informal talk. I was amazed on how much had changed since Jared Lander gave us this talk in 2012. It has become downright easy to create an R package using the tools now available to everyone.

I did the talk using Rstudio, roxygen2 and devotools. It was quick taking about 15 minutes. In the talk itself since it was such a small group we created an R package in real time together. It was simple.

After the talk I found a video where he build an R package. It also is about 15 minutes long


I think in the future when we have such a small group we will record the talk because the walk through I was able to do was really valuable.
