This journey started almost exactly a year ago, but it’s finally been sufficiently worked through and merged! Yay, I’ve officially contributed to the tidyverse (minor as it may be).

This is the last update to this strange saga… I hope.
Adding strings in R
This started out as a “hey, I wonder…” sort of thing, but as usual, they tend to end up as interesting voyages into the deepest depths of code, so I thought I’d write it up and share. Shoutout to [@coolbutuseless](https://twitter.com/coolbutuseless) for proving that a little curiosity can go a long way and inspiring me to keep digging into interesting topics.

Constricted development with reticulate
I’ve been using the reticulate package occasionally for a while now, so I was surprised to see that it had only just been officially released.

JC and the Vignettes
If that’s not a great 1960’s band name then I don’t know what is (hint: I don’t know what is).[Read More]
Thou shalt not compare numeric values (except when it works)
This was just going to be a few Tweets but it ended up being a bit of a rollercoaster of learning for me, and I haven’t blogged in far too long, so I’m writing it up quickly as a ‘hey look at that’ example for newcomers.[Read More]
Data Munging With R Preview - Storing Values (Assigning)
Since about October last year, I’ve been writing an introduction to R book. It’s been quite the experience. I’ve finally started making time to document some of the interesting things I’ve learned (about R, about writing, about how to bring those two together) along the way.[Read More]
2016 Australian Federal Election Flexdashboard
Here in the land down under we’ve finally completed our Federal election. We complain that it seems to go on for too long, but it’s a brief distraction compared to the USA electoral process. I managed to do a small analysis on the votes at a finer scale than I thought would be available, and created a flexdashboard to present the results. Given that I couldn’t make it to GovHack this year, this open-data analysis sort of makes up for it.[Read More]

They say “if you want to find an answer on the internet, just present a wrong one as fact. Then wait.“[Read More]

Open-source software is awesome. If I found that a piece of closed-source software was missing a feature that I wanted, well, bad luck. I probably couldn’t even tell if was actually missing or if I just didn’t know about it. When the source is available, maintained, and documented however, things get fun. We can identify, and perhaps fill gaps.[Read More]
