Get started with your first joining verb: inner-join! You'll learn to join tables together to answer questions about the LEGO dataset, which contains information across many tables about the sets, parts, themes, and colors of LEGOs over time.
Learn two more mutating joins, the left and right join, which are mirror images of each other! You'll learn use cases for each type of join as you explore parts and colors of LEGO themes. Then, you'll explore how to join tables to themselves to understand the hierarchy of LEGO themes in the data.
In this chapter, you'll cover three more joining verbs: full-join, semi-join, and anti-join. You'll then use these verbs to answer questions about the similarities and differences between a variety of LEGO sets.
Put together all the types of join you learned in this course to analyze a new dataset: Stack Overflow questions, answers, and tags. This includes calculating and visualizing trends for some notable tags like dplyr and ggplot2. You'll also master one more method for combining tables, the bind_rows verb, which stacks tables on top of each other.
