If you’ve read even a little bit of my blog you’ll notice I am a big fan of R. One of best thins about R, in my opinion, is its community of packages. They’re generally all well maintained, written, and (most importantly) work well together.

If you have a task you want to get done in R, I have two primary recommendations.
1. Check out the CRAN Task Views. It will help you find whatever packages are relavent to the task you want to get done.
2. Search for relevant RStudio Webinars to see quick, in-depth, excellent examples of how you can solve problems with R.
