R course for data journalists from the school of data

In this project we want to create an online R course for journalists and data journalists. We focus on people who are used to working with spreadsheets (e.g. excel). The course will be available in the languages Spanish, French, German and English.

We think R is great for journalists all over the world because it is free, open source and helps cleaning data, analysing data and creating beautiful graphs and reports. So far resources for journalists to learn R are very limited and we want to help make R one of journalists' favorite tools πŸŽ‰

So far we created...

devtools::install_github("school-of-data/r-consortium-proposal", 
                         subdir="r-package")
learnr::run_tutorial("en-recipe-template", package = "ddj")
learnr::run_tutorial("en-skills-template", package = "ddj")

But there is much more work to do and we need help!

Wanna get involved?

We are very thankful for any contributions. You don't need to be an R specialist or know R at all.
