One of my take aways from last week’s EARL conference was that R is more and more growing out of its academic roots into the enterprise. And with that come some challenges, e.g. how do I ensure consistent and systematic access to a set of R packages in an organisation, in particular when one team is providing packages to others?
Two packages can help here: roxyPackage and miniCRAN.
I wrote about roxyPackage earlier on this blog.
