R site updated

Posted to Software  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

The R site has a new face. It looked dated for years — maybe decades — so I’m glad it got a refresh (with further updates in the coming months I assume). I felt like the old look was such a turn off that I had to reassure newcomers that even though the site looks like crap, the computing language itself is in fact not crap.

At the same time though, the site has been the same since my first introduction to R back in undergrad. It was almost a source of comfort. A constant. A rock. So today, as we look ahead over the horizon towards what comes next, let us still remember the greatness that was and forever will be.
