the big problem with being a data scientist is that you have to be a statistician and a programmer, which is really two full time jobs, and consequently a lot of hard work. The webcast will cover some tools in R that make the programming side of things much easier.
You’ll get to hear about:
Writing stylish code.
Finding bad functions with the sig package.
Writing robust code with the assertive package.
Testing your code with the testthat package.
Documenting your code with the roxygen2 package.
It’s going to be pitched at a beginner’s-plus level. There’s nothing hard, but if you haven’t used these four packages, I’m sure you’ll learn something new. Register here.
