Enter the Tidyverse after a brief tour of DataMaid

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

ENTER THE TIDYVERSE
Meredith Brown is a data scientist at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, where she applies NLP, machine learning, and advanced analytical methods to projects across the enterprise. She first learned R while doing her PhD in brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester.

She’ll share some practical tips for project organization and documentation across different business contexts. We hope to spark informal discussion of data and code organization tools and principles, and to orient awareness toward resources like the Tidyverse Style Guide. The discussion will be aimed toward beginner and intermediate R users, but all perspectives are welcome.

BRIEF TOUR OF DATAMAID
Mena Morales is an Associate Director in Data Strategy and Solutions at Vertex Pharmaceuticals where she leads the DSS product and engineering team. She first learned R in graduate school while working on her PhD in neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis.

She’ll give a brief tour of DataMaid (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/dataMaid/index.html), a great package for the first steps of exploratory data analysis. The intent is just to give a quick introduction to the package so you’ll know where to start when you’re trying to see if it is useful for you.
