Tutorial: Using ESS and Emacs for R Programming and Data Analysis

presented by Anthony Rossini


This session will focus on the basics of using ESS for programming and data analysis with R, including extensions and customizations. The time schedule is 1 hour on the basics, 1 hour on advanced (ESS/Emacs) usage, 1 hour on programming in Emacs Lisp for customization, and 1/2 hour on "random best practices".

Background required:

Elementary knowledge of R for data analysis and rudimentary programming structures, interest in using Emacs.


People say that Emacs is helpful. Others don't understand why. This session will make it more helpful to some, and help unbelievers understand why.
