Tidy Tuesday is in Town!! What do you mean you've never heard about Tidy Tuesdays? It's a brilliant data project developed by R4DS learning community to promote the use of R language in Data Science and link mentors and learners. How?
Every Tuesday a raw dataset will be posted and an original chart associated with that dataset. The goal is to apply your take on the chart. While the dataset will be “tamed”, it will not always be tidy! As such you might need to apply various R for Data Science techniques to wrangle the data into a true tidy format. The goal of Tidy Tuesday is to apply your R skills, get feedback, explore other’s work, and connect with the greater RStats community! So everyone of all skills should participate!
Remember, done is better than perfect! It's better to show the progression of your skills with something basic but quick than something very sophisticated but tedious!
At the end of the meetup we will publish our graphs and code on Twitter with #TidyTuesday hashtag (fanfares)!
So get ready for a fun and hands-on meetup with lots to learn and explore!
5:30pm - doors open (pizza and drinks won't last forever!)
6pm - quick intros and hellos from R-Ladies and hosts
6:15ish pm - start TidyTuesday-ing!!
8:45ish pm - publish our amazing work
See you all there!
