Couple of R programming (mainly infrastructure/workflow) related topics discussed at the Los Angeles R users group in a tutorial/demo-like form (targeted mainly to beginners) by Szilard Pafka and Jeroen Ooms: how easy it is to create a simple package for your R code, the benefits of having your code in packages, documentation, automated testing and version control, the basic infrastructure R and some other software tools provide for this (CMD check, roxygen, devtools, RUnit/testthat, git/svn) and how an IDE can improve productivity.Video (integrated slides+demo+audio) is embedded next, but we encourage you to watch it in higher resolution (especially the demo part). More info on the meeting and about the Los Angeles R users group here. More meetings to come on further R programming and related topics such as programming with classes (S3/S4), debugging, more productivity tools etc.
