Summary: We are entering a new phase in the practice of data science, the ‘Code-Free’ era. Like all major changes this one has not sprung fully grown but the movement is now large enough that its momentum is clear. Here’s what you need to know.
I was joking when I entered on Google, “Where was my coworker yesterday?” After reviewing the responses that appeared from the search engine, I continued, “What did she eat for breakfast?” Sometimes the responses to my everyday questions seem insightful - on a certain level, interesting and intriguing.

Except for a short course at Sun Educational Services, most of my Java programming skills are self-taught.

Whether you are a veteran programmer with experience dating back to Fortran, or a new college grad with all the latest technologies, if you use R eventually you will have to worry about scoping!
Sure, we all start out ignoring scoping when we first begin using a new language. So what if all your variables and functions are global - you are the only one using them, right?!?! Unless you give up on R, you will eventually grow beyond your own system - either having to share your code with…Continue
