Include some advantages and disadvantages in the readme:

  • dplyr is easily composable and can work iteratively
    • can create functions and chain them together
    • can name intermediate components
    • mutate() automatically creates sub queries (show example)
  • for most common functions, can ignore vagaries of sql variants
  • can't easily construct custom joins, or new statements in SELECT
