Join RStudio Chief Data Scientist Hadley Wickham for his popular “Building tidy tools” workshop in Sydney, Australia! If you’d missed the sold out course at rstudio::conf 2019 now is your chance.

You should take this class if you have some experience programming in R and you want to learn how to tackle larger-scale problems. You’ll get the most if you’re already familiar with the basics of functions (i.e., you’ve written a few) and are comfortable with R’s basic data structures (vectors, matrices, arrays, lists, and data frames). There is approximately a 30% overlap in the material with Hadley’s previous “R Masterclass”. However, the material has been substantially reorganised, so if you’ve taken the R Masterclass in the past, you’ll still learn a lot in this class.

What will I learn?

This course has three primary goals. You will:

  • Learn efficient workflows for developing high-quality R functions, using the set of codified conventions of good package design. You’ll also learn workflows for unit testing, which helps ensure that your functions do exactly what you think they do.
  • Master the art of writing functions that do one thing well and can be fluently combined together to solve more complex problems. We’ll cover common function-writing pitfalls and how to avoid them.
  • Learn best practices for API design, programming tools, object design in S3, and the tidy eval system for NSE.
