README.md

This is the repo for "Data Science in the tidyverse" given at rstudio::conf(2019) in Jan 2019.

Description

This is a two-day hands on workshop based on the book R for Data Science. You will learn how to visualize, transform, and model data in R and work with date-times, character strings, and untidy data formats. Along the way, you will learn and use many packages from the tidyverse including ggplot2, dplyr, tidyr, readr, purrr, tibble, stringr, lubridate, and forcats.

Software Requirements

You'll be using RStudio Cloud, so (all going well) on the day of the workshop all you'll need is a laptop that can access the internet (wifi will be available).

In the unlikely event that there are problems with the conference internet connection, you may want to have a local installation on your computer as a backup. If you'd like, install the following:

  1. A recent version of R (~3.5.2), which is available for free at cran.r-project.org

  2. A recent version of RStudio IDE (~1.1.463), available for free at www.rstudio.com/download

  3. The set of relevant R packages, which you can install by connecting to the internet, opening RStudio, and running:

    install.packages(c("babynames", "fivethirtyeight", "formatR", "gapminder", "hexbin", "mgcv", "maps", "mapproj", "nycflights13", "rmarkdown", "skimr", "tidyverse", "viridis"))

Don't forget to bring your power cord!
