  • Speaker: Peter Aldhous of BuzzFeed News
  • Date/Time: Friday, Mar. 9 at 10:15am

  • Audio file: No audio file available.

We'll use the tidyverse packages dplyr and ggplot2, learning how to sort, filter, group, summarize, join, and visualize to identify trends in your data. If you want to combine SQL-like analysis and charting in a single pipeline, this session is for you. 

This session is good for: People who have worked with data operations in SQL or Excel and would like to do the same in R.
