Summary: This book 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 optimisingyour code. By reading this book, you will learn: The difference between an object and its name, and why the distinction is important; The important vector data structures, how they fit together, and how you can pull them apart using subsetting; The fine details of functions and environments; The condition system, which powers messages, warnings, and errors; The powerful functional programming paradigm, which can replace many for loops; The three most important OO systems: S3, S4, and R6; The tidy eval toolkit for metaprogramming, which allows you to manipulate code and control evaluation; Effective debugging techniques that you can deploy, regardless of how your code is run; How to find and remove performance bottlenecks.
