I have decided that I want to learn how to deal with dates in R and in scheduling this talk, I am publicly committing to my goal! I am starting now and hopefully by the talk date in October I will have worked it out. If not, I might end up presenting about the process of learning to use a new package in R than how to use `lubridate` per se.
At this stage, it is a bit unclear what this talk will be, but either way it will be fun!!
