Learn the dplyr methods of your dreams to slice, stir and squash your way from big ol' data.frame to the just the answers to all your questions*.

Plus! We'll put commands together using pipes! Ever wonder about that %>% symbol? Wonder no more!
Piping isn't just for cake icing or Super Mario's preferred mode of transport. It's your ticket away from brow-furrowing lines of code like: sqrt(sum(abs(x)))

*Given that all your questions in life revolve around summarising or mutating data
