Not everyone has the luxury of taking some downtime at the end the year, but if you do have some free time, you may enjoy something on my short list of downtime reading. The books and articles here are not exactly “light reading”, nor are they literature for cuddling by the fire. Nevertheless, you may find something that catches your eye.

The Syncfusion series of free eBooks contains more than a few gems on a variety of programming subjects, including James McCaffrey’s R Programming Succinctly and Barton Poulson’s R Succinctly.

For a more ambitious read, mine the rich vein of SUNY Open Textbooks. My pick is Hiroki Sayama’s Introduction to the Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems.

If you just can’t get enough of data science, then a few articles that caught my attention are:

Starry Night through 6,667 uniform random samples

Finally, if you really have some time on your hands, try searching through the 318M+ papers on PDFDRIVE.

Happy reading, and have a Happy and Prosperous New Year from all of us at RStudio!!
