Danielle Navarro


Workshop plan

Are you new to this R business and short on time? Would you like to start working with data in R without having to go through the arduous process of learning all the programming details first? Do you have a neat data set you’d like to explore and visualise? This might be the workshop for you! Or are you an experienced old school R programmer who learned how to do everything in base R? Are you secretly nervous around pipes? Do you sometimees wonder whether the tibble is worth the trouble? Then this might be for you too!

The idea is for everyone to bring a data set of their own, and to work together as a group to explore the data sets using tidyverse. We’ll cover:

Workshop content

The content for the workshop follows the slides linked below and uses content from the github repository.


In addition to Dani’s presentation, the workshop builds on contributions from Jenny Richmond, Lisa Williams and Steph de Silva in developing the concept, providing feedback, promoting the workshop, and so many other things. It’s very much a joint effort :-)
