Final Release Date: October 2014
Pages: 190

R is best suited to produce data and visual analytics through customizable scripts and commands, instead of typical statistical tools that provide tick boxes and drop-down menus for users. The book is divided into three parts to help you perform these steps. It starts by providing you with an overview of the basic data types, data structures, and tools available in R that are used to solve common tasks. It then moves on to offer insights and examples on object-oriented programming with R; this includes an introduction to the basic control structures available in R with examples. It also includes details on how to implement S3 and S4 classes. Finally, the book provides three detailed examples that demonstrate how to bring all of these ideas together.

Comments about oreilly R Object-oriented Programming:

I have wondered for a while how to encapsulate state in R programs so that I could develop simulation models of supply chain processes. I knew this could be done, but I never knew how. This book removes the mystic for me.
