What you will learn in this lesson

  • The problems projects solve
  • How to create a project
  • How to move a project
  • How to rename a project

When we wrote our first code in lesson 4, we:

  • created a new file and saved it
  • wrote some code
  • ran said code

For simple coding endeavors like the one in lesson 4, this workflow is fine. But when you work on larger projects, this workflow will soon become painful—and prone to create avoidable errors you will spend a lot of time debugging.

Projects are a built-in feature of RStudio that is designed to simplify our workflow. Projects save time, they prevent a lot of errors from happening, and they help us to keep our code organized.
