There was another disagreement/discussion about how people should learn and teach R this week. It was centered around the Tidyverse (surprise), which in case you’re unfamiliar “is an opinionated collection of R packages designed for data science. All packages share an underlying design philosophy, grammar, and data structures.”
Some people love the Tidyverse. Others are less fond of it.
For me, the more tools the better.
