Hi, I've been trying to become proficient in R for a while. One of my strategies is to find a website that has an example for how to do something I am interested in and work my way through the project.
Trouble is that no matter what I try to do there are always issues with the code that is provided failing. Sometimes it's my fault as I haven't installed a library or have not read the instructions properly. Many of the issues I can solve myself by modifying the provided code. However, most of these projects I try to utilise fail in some way that I can't seem to find a sensible reason for.
Yesterday I tried to work my way through https://www.rayshader.com/ . It's a great way of creating 3D maps and adding clouds, sun movement etc. I'm sure it really does work well. Having managed to get through many issues I got to the point where the only way suggested to solve the error was to uninstall R and R studio and then try again!
Is it me doing something wrong or making a false assumption about using R?
Surely not everyone has these sorts of continuous issues?
Your comments and advice would be appreciated.
