Most R users will never have to worry about changing R’s startup process. In fact, for portability and reproducibility of code, we recommend that...

April 11, 2017
By

Today, we will continue getting familiar with data from Quandl, but will also devote more time to expanding our dygraphs toolkit. We will be building up a data visualization in discrete pieces, which isn’t very efficient, but will make things easier when we move this project into production as a Shiny app. From a substantive perspective, we will examine...
