Author shares his experience and technology of work simultaneously with 3-5 different large R projects, each having a number of files of R code with a few thousands lines of code.
To help attendees to work effectively with large R projects.
The tutorial will cover the following topics:
Basic R programming and computing knowledge.
Data mining professionals, statisticians, and anyone interested to learn how to work with large R projects.
The code can be downloaded from http://github.com/alexzolot/UseR-2013/tree/master/work/UseR-2013
During tutorial I will use R-3.01 with Eclipse (Kepler) + StatET plugin.
In spite all mentioned above code and functions can be used in any other IDE (e.g. RStudio), the most convenient and effective would be if attendees use the same environment, that is in my experience the most productive for large R projects.
I created package for Win-64x environment that can be downloaded from https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/37458038/UseR-2013-Tutorial.zip. The package contents my code mentioned above as well as Eclipse with necessary plugins and R. The package does not require installation: just download, unzip in any folder and click the .bat file in the package root.
I would very high appreciate if attendees fill a small survey (www.surveymonkey.com/s/DB9PM7D) to help me better adjust the tutorial content and form for their needs.
