Using R for Life Improvement - Coming soon.

An Introduction to Timing in R - Are your R scripts getting larger and consequently slower? Whether it's a shiny app, a markdown document or a standard R script, knowing how fast your functions are is crucial to an efficient piece of code. Packages such as microbenchmark and tictoc can help you do this.
