Norman Matloff

Dubious things about Regression You Learned in School

"I was asked to present some examples from my new book (https://www.amazon.com/Statistical-Regression-Classification-Machine-Learning/dp/1498710913/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503684202&sr=8-1&keywords=matloff+regression) on regression and classification; thanks for the opportunity. My examples will carry a theme of contrasts between how this material is taught/not taught and the practical realities."

An introduction to tidy evaluation

Tidy evaluation is a new framework for non-standard evaluation that will be used throughout tidyverse. In this talk, I'll introduce you to the problem that tidy eval solves, illustrated with examples of the various approaches used in R. I'll then explain the most important components so that you can start writing your own functions instead of copying and pasting tidyr and dplyr code. I'll finish with a small shiny app that shows how tidy eval is a natural fit for handling user input.
