Have you used the anyNA() function in your #rstats code recently? Or even paste0()? Then you might be interested in my short critique of these functions as written up in the #renjin blog.

If you're living in the Netherlands and you are interested in learning the basics of programming in R, then this two-day classroom training will appeal to you! The training will be in English and provided in the lovely city of The Hague in the first week of November. The training is provided by BeDataDriven, the #1 R experts in the Netherlands. Follow the link for more details!

Somewhat annoyed with the complexity of existing logging packages for #rstats, I created one which simply extends the message(), warning(), and stop() functions in R's base package. Write time stamped messages to the console and a text file using these simple commands.

I hope other people will find this package as useful as I do!

Being one of the 180 new members of this community, let me introduce myself. 

I'm Maarten-Jan and I'm an applied mathematician living in the Netherlands. I work for a company called BeDataDriven and we are developing a new R interpreter for the JVM called 'Renjin'. Like GNU R, it's open source and our goal is that most, if not all, CRAN packages will eventually work in Renjin as well. Being written in Java, Renjin has some advantages over GNU R which some of you may be interested in. However, Renjin does not yet cover all the GNU R functionality so we would love to hear from people about their experiences using Renjin.

If you'd like to learn more about Renjin, then a good place to start is the video of a presentation at the recent UseR! conference in Spain by my colleague +Alexander Bertram.

I've translated my Dutch blog post on how to set up a static website on Google Cloud Storage. As there's not much information on this on the internet (apart from Google's rather technical documentation), I though this would be fairly useful for a broader audience.

If you have comments or suggestions, then let me know!

Mijn persoonlijke website draait nu op Google Cloud Storage. Ook weten hoe dat moet? Lees dan nu mijn artikel over het hosten van statische websites op Google Cloud Storage.

Een paar jaar geleden heb ik een korte introductie geschreven over het gebruik van Mercurial voor versiebeheer bij het programmeren. Na een lange afwezigheid staat de tekst en het ebook weer online: http://www.maartenjan.org/artikelen/2013-05-13-versiebeheer-met-mercurial.html
