Tim Hopper asked on Twitter today:
#rstats programming without @hadleywickham’s libraries is like ________ without _________.
Some of the replies were:
- (skydiving, a parachute)
- (gouging your own eyes out, NULL)
- (dentistry, anesthesia)
- (shaving, a razor)
- (internet shopping, credit card)
Clearly there’s a lot of love out there for Hadley Wickham’s R packages. I’m familiar with his ggplot2 graphics package, and it’s quite impressive. I need to look at his other packages as well.
