Intro to R Markdown + Collaborative Coding Activity w/Kaylene McClanahan

December 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

At this meetup, Kaylene McClanahan will lead us through our first collaborative coding activity! Kaylene will briefly introduce us to R Markdown (a great tool for easily annotating your code, sharing it with others, and turning your results into reports), and then we will work together in small groups to address a highly important and socially relevant question–where can you find NYC’s most raging parties?

We know the idea of coding with others can be daunting, but this is a safe space and everyone is welcome (even if you do not know how to use R yet). In fact, each group will be assigned a more experienced R user so this will be a great opportunity for beginners to see how other people deal with data in R! This will be a relaxed environment and a good chance to meet some of your fellow R Ladies, so please do not feel like you do not know enough to join in.

If you can, bring your computer!
