Developing R packages as a unified {verse} – a set of packages that work well together but with each focusing on individual tasks – is an efficient strategy to structure support for complex workflows. The ongoing challenge becomes managing the growth of related packages in a holistic manner. This is especially problematic in industries with a heavy emphasis on stability, for example if packages need to be validated prior to use in production. In this talk, I will discuss a paradigm for developing and maintaining validated R packages, emphasizing the following areas:

  1. strategies for organizing packages to prevent excessive re-work
  2. facilitating responsive, iterative development and
  3. empathy for developer and user experiences.
