Notes on learning

I have an idea for lowering the barrier to learn new R packages. I have built a few private packages, but nothing of mine fits the bill for what I want to try. There are uncountable resources for getting started with R, and I do not have much to add there. If you defied the odds and found this before you found STAT 545, I highly recommend that course. My idea is to integrate three fantastic tools for thought:

I plan to start with shiny and work my way up to golem. Both packages have fantastic documentation already, and I will learn from and be inspired by that content as I go. I have maintained a minimal website for a few years, but I’ve never had something to show off there. I plan to create in the open so you can learn from my progress if not from the learning content I create.
