The above title was the title of my talk this evening at our Bay Area R Users Group. I had been asked to talk about my new book, and I presented four of the myths that are dispelled in the book.
Hadley also gave an interesting talk, “An introduction to tidy evaluation,” involving some library functions that are aimed at writing clearer, more readable R. The talk came complete with audience participation, very engaging and informative.
The venue was GRAIL, a highly-impressive startup. We will be hearing a lot more about this company, I am sure.
