Quotes of the Week
I have a confession to make: Last year in July, I went cold turkey with #rstats to force myself to get really good at #Python. Today I fell off the wagon. What can I say? R is beautiful. It's beautiful, it's beautiful, I missed R so much.— Cassie Kozyrkov (@quaesita) April 27, 2018
