Organize your data manipulation tasks in a standard way, write clean and efficient code, and build reproducible data management processes, using the most modern R tools: tidyr, dplyr and lubridate.
The post "Efficient Data Manipulation with R" Course | April 11-12 Milan appeared first on MilanoR.
The ggseas package for R, which provides convenient treatment of seasonal time series in the ggplot2 universe, was first released by me in February 2016 and since then has been enhanced several ways. The latest version, 0.4.0, is now on CRAN.
The improvements since I last blogged about ggseas include:
added the convenience function tsdf() to convert a...
Gathering data from the web is one of the key tasks in order to generate easy data-driven insights into various topics.
Thanks to the fantastic Rvest R package web scraping is pretty straight forward.
It basically works like this; go to a website, find the right items using the selector gadget and plug the element path into your R-code.
In the exercises below we practice how to personalize graphics parameters, how to produce different plots at the same time and how to save a plot in a file. We will use commands such as par and jpeg. We will use the mtcars dataset, provided by R Cran (we can upload the dataset by typing
I’m pleased to announce tibble, a new package for manipulating and printing data frames in R. Tibbles are a modern reimagining of the data.frame, keeping what time has proven to be effective, and throwing out what is not. The name comes from dplyr: originally you created these objects with tbl_df(), which was most easily pronounced
by Joseph Rickert Last year, I wrote the New York R Conference “set the bar pretty darn high for a first time conference”. Not only was there an outstanding lineup of speakers, but the energy and enthusiasm that conference attendees brought with them, or maybe just generated on the spot, was remarkable. This year I am definitely looking forward...
This is a brief update on my packages not currently on CRAN: tfsR, HIBPwned, and mockaRoo. tfsR tfsR is designed to help you work git repositories in Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) and Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS). I wrote the package a while ago and it has/had just two functions; one for getting a
The goal of this course is to give you the skills to do the statistics that are in current published papers, and make pretty figures to show off your results. While we will go over the mathematical concepts behind the statistics, this is NOT meant to be a classical statistics class. We will focus more Lesson 0: Introduction...
I’m porting my Medium blog to host on Github using Jekyll at
data-steve.github.io. I decided to do it
with code and make a package out of it in case others might want to.
Only after setting up the Medium blog did I realize that it doesn’t meet
We are pleased to announce our two keynote speakers this year at EARL (Effective Application of the R Language) Conference from 13th-15th September. The keynotes will be presenting on the morning of Wednesday 14th September. Kenneth Cukier Kenneth Cukier is … Continue reading →
