WHAT WE’RE DOING:
This event will be a mix of socializing and data visualization. If you don’t have a lot of experience with R, data viz is a fun way to get going. I think we will cover plotting in base R and get into ggplot a bit. I’m happy to add another topic if you have any ideas! This is a safe, non-competitive environment to try new things.
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring your laptop. Your laptop cord and a notebook might be a good idea, too. If you have any cool data sets, bring ’em!
Just down the hall is a mini coffee shop. You can get your espresso, drip coffee, tea, and other snacks there for cheap. (Bring your own mug and you get $0.25 off!)
We have a classroom for this meetup! Meet us in room 226 of O’Shaughnessy Science. This is the building connected to Owens science. You can park on Summit for free. The parking ramp is also convenient and decently priced ($1.00 or $1.50 per hour). The east side of the building has an elevator and the building is generally accessible.
Who wants to volunteer to help out with the content for this meetup? Remember, this is a safe environment for pushing yourself. I’m visualizing (ha.) you finding a data set, creating code that produces a few important types of plots, and coming up with a list of challenges (e.g. “create a plot that demonstrates the difference in bitterness between different types of beer.”). Someone (maybe YOU?) can prepare materials for plotting in base R (e.g. plot, boxplot) and another person (Katie Jolly) will prepare some materials for ggplot.
