Debugging and Profiling R code
October 17 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A
This workshop will provide suggestions and concrete advice on debugging R code, informally (tactics to be used) and formally (using commands such as “traceback” and “debug”). We’ll also discuss preventing errors in the first place. In addition, we’ll discuss using profiling to determine the bottlenecks in your code and strategies you can use to speed up computation. Familiarity with R will be assumed, specifically writing your own R functions.
