Things to learn this year

ggplot – I think this R package has the potential to make my graphics code more concise, quicker to write, and easier to modify and re-use. Hopefully a bit of time invested in learning the syntax will pay off in the form of nicer graphs and neater, easier to modify later code.

git – using a proper version control system should make tinkering with existing code, trying new things, and maintaining complex collections of code easier. Github will facilitate sharing code where desired.
