Quick shoutout to the Tidyverse's intuitiveness/simplicity

I'm not sure why, but I just had an epiphany in realizing how the Tidyverse uses functions as verbs, arguments as nouns (and adverbs as... adverbs?). It's so simple -- I wish I knew about that as a beginner R user! It would've made the learning curve way less steep.

Anyways, I just wanted to share that -- thinking about code as writing complete sentences really satisfied me for some reason.


Right on! (As we appropriated from the African-American community in the 60s). It illustrates why the tidyverse evolved from a Grammar of Graphics
