Tidymodels site launch

Max Kuhn, author of the caret package (Classification And REgression Training), the indispensible and universally acclaimed R toolbox for machine learning, announced yesterday (April 21, 2020) the launch of tidymodels.org. The site is a central location for learning and using the tidymodels framework, a collection of packages for modeling and machine learning based on Tidyverse principles.

I’m headed over there now for the Getting Started articles. It’s time to ramp up my machine learning skills on the new framework. Kuhn says he’ll continue to support bug fixes for caret, but new development goes into tidymodels. He says everything you could do in caret you’re supposed to be able to do now in tidymodels.
