advanced R

Days 22-23: Meddling in the affairs of wizards

For the longest time I have been terrified of working with some of the low level features of R. So very often I would have been digging around by myself in the documentation - back when I started I don’t think there was an #rstats twitter community, I didn’t have anyone else around me using R, and I found the R mailing lists pretty intimidating because, well, a lot of the comments felt, um, slightly less than welcoming shall we say?
