I found a cool use for purrr’s map_if function recently that both felt wizardly and helped me better understand when to use map_if. Problem: I had a list called params with 3 items of different types
start_date - a Date end_date - a Date confidence_interval - a Numeric params <- list( start_date = as.Date("2015-01-01"), end_date = as.Date("2015-12-31"), confidence_interval = 0.8 ) params ## $start_date ##  "2015-01-01" ## ## $end_date ##  "2015-12-31" ## ## $confidence_interval ##  0.

What a great two days I had at rOpenSci’s ozunconf 2017.
two days of meeting fascinating and friendly new people two days filled with great conversations two days of learning new things and breaking things two days of inspiration two days of communal git ups and downs two days of not having to explain ‘why R’ Before, during and since the ozunconf I have been the interested in the idea that since actions create data - our own actions in attending and participating generate their own data that would be interesting to analyse.
