Welcome

This is the website for work-in-progress 2nd edition of Advanced R, a book in Chapman & Hall’s R Series. The book is designed primarily for R users who want to improve their programming skills and understanding of the language. It should also be useful for programmers coming to R from other languages, as it explains some of R’s quirks and shows how some parts that seem horrible do have a positive side.

This edition is a work in progress. If you’re looking for the electronic version of the 1st edition, you can find it online at http://adv-r.had.co.nz/.
