Episode 12: Using Version Control With R

Posted on Monday, Apr 1, 2013 | Category: Podcast
This is not an April Fool’s joke … The R-Podcast is back once again! In this episode, I discuss the concept of version control and how you can get started with using the Git VCS right now with your R projects. Also I discuss a big batch of listener feedback, and highlight a couple of great visualization applications from the community using ggplot2. All of that and more on episode 12 of the R-Podcast!
