Post 3/4 for dplyr 1.1.0 is out! πŸŽ‰

Today, we'll look at how the vctrs πŸ“¦ has upgraded dplyr's vector functions, like `case_when()` and `between()`.

We'll also look at two powerful new helpers: `case_match()` and `consecutive_id()`!

Shame that such a competent and upright, honest politician has been sacked for clearly and beyond doubt evading millions in taxes (while also being chancellor), lying about it and, fundamentally, not giving a shit about people. I only hope there's a reality show coming up so he can quickly bounce back.

Miserable git rant

@ucl wants people to use Outlook(365), by default. They don't support many other clients.

I happen to *really* dislike it. Was using Gmail, but Microsoft/Google keep fighting and I can't any more, as Gmail doesn't support 2FA.

Then switched to Spikenow - which is cool, but *very* flaky. Not sure whether it's them or MS that doesn't make it easy for them... Emails stopped syncing in Spikenow, so full on Outlook365 since yesterday.

I am not enjoying this. 😞 😑

I'm a long way away from dynamic programming in , but learning how to escape variable names in functions is a step. In this simple function for obtaining summary statistics for Likert items, the double curly braces escape the variable name and allow you to reference a variable in a dataframe.

t_Likert = function(df,var) {
df |>
select({{var}}) |>
drop_na() |>
group_by({{var}}) |>
summarise(Freq = n()) |>
mutate(Pct = round(Freq/sum(Freq),2))

Some days, being HoD sucks and you have to do horrible things (which I hate to do). Some others days, like today, you get to do things and it looks like you have an amazing plan all along and everything comes through and you make things that are potentially good for a lot of colleagues. Bring more like today and **much fewer** like last week!
