This interactive workshop will equip you with the basic skills to create an R package of your own! We will walk through the package building process and apply the same workflow to your own function. We will learn about testing and continuous integration and implement them using Github Actions.
Participants will need to bring along one function they would like to put in a package.
Prior to the workshop participants will need to have
