R Beginner series: Part 2 Visualization with ggplot2

February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

New Year / New Skills
Let 2019 be a game changing year for you. Come learn R and Data Science skills with us!!

R-Ladies Orlando will be running few sessions for Absolute R Beginners!! There will be a short intro to RStudio and R basics at 7:00, followed by an intro to R for Data Science: Visualization with ggplot2. This is part 2 of the series, but it is still an opportunity for anyone completely new to R to get started.

Bring your (charged) laptop and we’ll help you get up and running with the software, walk you through the R programming basics, help with FAQs, point you to relevant learning resources, and any other fundamental R questions you may have!

Please look over our github page for materials from our last workshop [masked]) and see if you can follow through the examples https://github.com/rladies/meetup-presentations_orlando/tree/master/2019-01-23_Workshop
