An introduction to R7

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The R7 package is a new OOP system designed to be a successor to S3 and S4. It has been designed and implemented collaboratively by the RConsortium Object- Oriented Programming Working Group, which includes representatives from R-Core, BioConductor, RStudio/tidyverse, and the wider R community.

In this talk, I'll introduce R7 to the wider world. Attendees will learn why we created R7 and how they can use it to create new classes and packages. I hope to inspire folks to download, try it out, and give us the feedback we need to make it better.
