# RYouWithMe Unit 3 - VizW(h)iz

Welcome to the third unit of RYouWithMe! In Unit 3, we’re tackling data visualisation!

Unit 3 has five lessons:

Plus, we’ve sourced some beautiful plots on quick demand from some ggplot pros. (pros relative to us, at least!) Check out the plots and their RMD files at the VizW(h)iz Gallery

# Why “VizW(h)iz”?

R-Ladies Sydney co-founders Lisa Williams and Jen Richmond, who conjured up the name of this unit, had different things in mind! Lisa had in mind “VizWiz” - as in Visualisation Wizardry! Jen had in mind “VizWhiz” - as in Becoming a Whiz in Visualisation!

It turns out this debate cannot be won (or lost). True, wizards are classically male - though we’re all about busting stereotypes at R-Ladies Sydney! Also true - while it’s great to be a whiz at something, we all know by know learning R isn’t such a speedy undertaking!

To bridge this great divide, we find ourselves with a compromise: VizW(h)iz!!
