Results of the Readers’ Survey

 First of all, let me say “Thank You” to all of the 357 people who completed the survey. I was hoping for 100, so needless to say the response blew away my expectations. This endeavor seems like a worthwhile effort to do once a year. Next year I will refine the...

Simpler R coding with pipes > the present and future of the magrittr package

This is a guest post by Stefan Milton, the author of the magrittr package which introduces the %>% operator to R programming.

(This article is adapted to the latest version of rvest package.) In my previous post, I demonstrated how we can scrape online data using existing packages.
