Programming with dplyr [program]

(Builds on: Scoped verbs)

At some point during the quarter, you may have noticed that you were copy-and-pasting the same dplyr snippets again and again. You then might have remembered it’s a bad idea to have more than three copies of the same code and tried to create function. Unfortunately it’s likely that you failed because dplyr verbs work a little differently to most other R functions. In this unit, you’ll learn exactly what makes dplyr verbs different, and a new set of techniques so that you can program with them.
