"This introduction to R is derived from an original set of notes describing the S and S-PLUS environments written in 1990–2 by Bill Venables and David M. Smith when at the University of Adelaide. We have made a number of small changes to reflect differences between the R and S programs, and expanded some of the material."

- title: A Layered Grammar of Graphics
url: http://vita.had.co.nz/papers/layered-grammar.pdf
type: article
authors: Hadley Wickham
description: |
R has been one of my least favorite languages to learn but being exposed to [Wilkinson's Grammar of Graphics](http://www.amazon.com/The-Grammar-Graphics-Statistics-Computing/dp/0387245448) via Hadley Wickham's sublime implementation in ggplot2 has been worth the price of admission. This paper acts as an abbreviated form of [Wickham's 2009 manual on ggplot2](http://www.amazon.com/dp/0387981403/ref=cm_sw_su_dp?tag=ggplot2-20).

- title: Tidy Data
url: http://vita.had.co.nz/papers/tidy-data.pdf
type: article
authors: Hadley Wickham
description: |
Less about R and more about Hadley Wickham's assertions about the ideal _shape_ of data and how that informs the many R-lang libraries he's created. A great read for both data novices and experts, as data cleaning/munging ends up being one of the hardest data science problems.
- title: Advanced R
url: http://adv-r.had.co.nz/
description: |
"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."

- title: R Packages
url: http://r-pkgs.had.co.nz/
description: |
"Packages are the fundamental units of reproducible R code. They include reusable R functions, the documentation that describes how to use them, and sample data. In this section you’ll learn how to turn your code into packages that others can easily download and use. Writing a package can seem overwhelming at first. So start with the basics and improve it over time. It doesn’t matter if your first version isn’t perfect as long as the next version is better."
