Welcome to the R4DS Data Science in Education Using R Book Club!

We are working together to read Data Science in Education Using R by Ryan A. Estrellado, Emily A. Bovee, Jesse Mostipak, Joshua M. Rosenberg, and Isabella C. Velásquez. Join the #book_club-ds_in_education_using_r channel on the R4DS Slack to participate. As we read, we are producing notes about the book and saving them in this bookdown.
