Revolutions blog: May 2018 roundup

R help mailing list-2
Since 2008, Microsoft staff and guests have written about R at the Revolutions
blog (http://blog.revolutionanalytics.com) and every month I post a summary of
articles from the previous month of particular interest to readers of r-help.

In case you missed them, here are some articles related to R from the
month of May:

The R Consortium has announced a new round of grants for projects proposed by
the R community:
