Tidy Tuesday with R-Ladies
Tidy Tuesday is a weekly data project where R enthusiasts across the globe share their plots, analysis, and thoughts about a new data set.
It’s a great way to get started with R or really stretch your R skills in a fun way and try something new.
On February 5th, 2023 we co-hosted our first (virtual) Tidy Tuesday event in collaboration with Philly RUG. It was an interactive live-coding event where we split into two break-out rooms and focused on two different datasets. A big thank you to Alice Walsh (R-Ladies Philly) and Cory Cutsail (Philly RUG) for leading breakout rooms and coding live! We had a few members submit their code/plots for a prize (O’Reilly Media eBook on Data Science/R or exclusive R-related prize) and overall had a successful and fun event. Thanks Cory and Philly RUG!
On April 25th, we co-hosted another virtual Tidy Tuesday event with R-Ladies DC. We had a great turn out with over 20 R-Ladies members showing up to code. For this session, we focused on the Tidy Tuesday dataset ‘London Marathon’ and split into two breakout rooms led by co-organizers Alice Walsh (Philly) and Sam Tyner-Monroe (DC), who did a great job leading, live-coding, and talking through their code. At the end of our coding session, we had a show-and-tell where both groups showcased their visualizations and insights. We also had others share their plots as well! Overall, these were such a fun events, and we want to give a huge thank you to Philly RUG and R-Ladies DC for the collaboration. Check out our code and plots on our GitHub: https://github.com/rladies/meetup-presentations_philadelphia/tree/master/2023/tidytuesday
We look forward to having more Tidy Tuesday events! If you’re interested in attending future events follow our meetup, twitter and website for information.
We had so much fun co-hosting a #tidytuesday code along with @RLadiesDC ! Check out some of the plots we made while exploring the London marathon data! Code is also available on our github: https://t.co/KhLG7TITCF pic.twitter.com/3jCxbr3GVs— R-Ladies Philly (@RLadiesPhilly) April 26, 2023
