Up-Coming Presentations and Workshops:

The variable key and the kutils R package

Dr. Paul Johnson, Director CRMDA
Saturday, July 8, 2017 -
1:00pm to 2:30pm
Johnson County Library, Leawood Pioneer, 4700 Town Center Dr., Leawood KS

This is the monthly meeting of the Kansas City R User Group (KCRUG). Note the location is in Leawood, KS, at the Johnson County Library.

I'll be making a presentation about the R package "kutils", in which we offer a framework called the "variable key". This is not "too advanced" for most beginning R users. It actually goes in the other direction, trying to make R usage more understandable to corporate project managers and principal investigators. It is a "programmable codebook" in disguise as a spreadsheet. One of the reasons that commercial enterprises are concerned about R is the extreme flexibility of it. R allows on-the-fly construction of new functions and language constructs. R code built on specialized idioms quickly becomes illegible to other R programmers, even experienced ones.

Please glance at the vignette to see if you might be interested. Install the kutils package. Run



If it turns out that July 8 attendees are truly interested in "advanced R programming", I can show you how the package is put together, documented, and so forth.
