This question already has an answer here:

I'm using R and the manuals on the R site are really informative. However, I'd like to see some more examples and implementations with R which can help me develop my knowledge faster. Any suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ This is really a Stackoverflow question as it has to do with learning the R programming language. With the current wording the question is only associated with statistics by virtue of R's focus on statistical analysis. $\endgroup$ – Sharpie Jul 19 '10 at 20:23

    $\begingroup$ I wouldn't vote to close it just yet- there could be a good question in there. Perhaps something like "Where can I find useful tutorials that focus on putting statistical concepts into practice using a tool such as R?" or "Where can I find useful tutorials that teach statistics by example using tools such as R?" $\endgroup$ – Sharpie Jul 19 '10 at 20:58

R bloggers has been steadily supplying me with a lot of good pragmatic content.
From the author:

R-Bloggers.com is a central hub (e.g: A blog aggregator) of content 
collected from bloggers who write about R (in English). 
The site will help R bloggers and users to connect and follow 
the “R blogosphere”.

Another great resource is the LearnR blog, which went through an extensive study of visualizations with lattice and ggplot2.

R is designed around ideas such as "reproducible research" and "trustworthy software", as John Chambers says in his excellent book "Software for Data Analysis: Programming with R".

One of the best ways to learn R is to look at the wealth of source code that available on CRAN (with 2461 packages and counting). Simple install.packages, load a library(), and start browsing the code.

I found this rather helpful: http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/Verzani-SimpleR.pdf
