Adding a chapter to Object-oriented programming in R

Yeah, as I mentioned in the previous post, I think I need to add at least one chapter to OOP in R to get it a bit longer before I sell it to a publisher. And since I don’t think I can write a full book on how to fit models—and since I already have the code for fitting Bayesian linear regression models—I am going to write a chapter on that.

It will be a bit of an example of the generic functions you typically expect a model have have and a bit about how to construct model matrices and use formulas in your code.

Since I’ve signed OOP in R up to Kindle Select I am not sure I can update the book for those who bought it on Leanpub, but I will try. If not, I’ll make this chapter available for free somewhere.
