Book Description

This book helps you understand how R works at a fundamental level. It is designed for R programmers who want to deepen their understanding of the language, and programmers experienced in other languages who want to understand what makes R different and special.

It will teach you the foundations of R; three fundamental programming paradigms (functional, object-oriented, and metaprogramming); and powerful techniques for debugging and optimising your code.

The second edition is a comprehensive update:

  • New foundational chapters: "Names and values," "Control flow," and "Conditions"
  • comprehensive coverage of object oriented programming with chapters on S3, S4, R6, and how to choose between them
  • Much deeper coverage of metaprogramming, including the new tidy evaluation framework
  • use of new package like rlang (rlang.r-lib.org), which provides a clean interface to low-level operations, and purr (purrr.tidyverse.org/) for functional programming
  • Use of color in code chunks and figures
