Data visualization with ggplot2 📊📈- Vol 2

March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

Since no one came forward to host this meetup (yes ladies, this time I am totally fine being the bad cop, and will pick someone… 😈) I will present some ggplot2 material I had from before.

For those who are less familiar with ggplot2:
It is a wonderful and very popular data visualization package in R. It provides all sorts of functions to customize any bits and pieces you can imagine in a plot.

Beginners are welcome, although some familiarity with R is needed. And if you are used to plotting with base R plot, I’d say it’s time to spice things up with ggplot2!

In our last ggplot2 meetup we mainly talked about point (scatter) plots. I will pick up from there, show a more customized example and move on to plotting:
– histograms
– barplots
– boxplots
– doxplots
– errorbars

I know it’s a little ambitious, so please let’s all try to get there in time. (I’ll try to do my best too 😅)

Materials will be available on R-Ladies github under meetup presentations repo of our chapter (https://github.com/rladies/meetup-presentations_columbus) on the day of the meetup.

Please bring your laptop and have R and RStudio (and the tidyverse package) installed and working. But if things don’t work and you’re having issues, don’t worry! We’re here to help (◕‿◕✿)

And we’ll have pizza! 🍕

Parking: Park in any spot marked “Reserved for the Columbus Collaboratory”. There should be more than enough available- all are free. If you find that these spots are filled – park anywhere in surrounding lots and Katie will give you a day pass for your dashboard.

Call Katie if any issues finding it [masked]).
