Your Turn

  • Create a new file with use_r() called “db_con”

  • Put this function in the file and save it

  • Use load_all() to load the package function.

  • Run this code to make sure it works


in R/db_con.R:

db_con <- function(dbname = "residents_per_sector") { 
            dbname <- match.arg(dbname)
         # We'll pretend we've connected to a database
         # and just return some hard-coded data instead. 
            sector = as.factor(1:8),
            residents = c(1000, 2034, 4594, 2304, 8093, 1200, 300, 2398))
