I like using things I’m learning to get actual work done. Theoretical knowledge can only go so far; Sometimes you just need to get your hands dirty.
I’m doing R Programming as a part of a series of Data Science courses on Coursera. Now, whenever Isee anything that mentions data, I start thinking in R.
The other day, I needed to filter some data from an RMA data file.
I could have saved the file and used Excel to do the filtering but I have so much power with R, I just couldn’t help it.
Here’s what I did in R.
A friend at work, @yzorg, showed me another quick way to do it with Power Shell but I still love my R.
