Including Link to Gapminder data in Setup or Extras #329
It would be very useful to have a link to the gapminder data for download included on the Setup section of the course site, or, if you don't want people downloading it beforehand, in at least the Extras section. Currently, this data is first downloaded during a Challenge in Episode 2, which an instructor may or may not actually do.
Everytime I go through this material, I have to search to find the link to the data, which sometimes I send to people to download ahead of time if there may be internet connection issues.
I'm happy to submit a PR adding the link the Extras section if this change is OK to make.
Thanks for pointing that out @cengel. I think it's probably fine to have it in the Extras, but I also think it's time to remove the bit about
which is from the antecedent material that became these lessons. Would be better to have the materials be pulled directly from a carpentries repo.
@raynamharris I'll usually have folks download the file by entering the URL into a browser window (and doing "Save as..." if not automatically prompted to save the file), but
should work, too.
