Ds4clj prep meeting: studying a bit of R & Tidyverse

(edit: clarified the assumed background)

This meeting is organized by a Clojure community, but we will not assume knowledge of Clojure.

As a preparation for the coming ds4clj course, we will meet to learn a bit about the R language for statistical computing.

Assumed background:

  • knowledge of programming in some language (or beginner knowledge in R)
  • interest in data analysis

Length

The meeting will be 90 minutes long.
Some of us may wish to stay and chat afterwards.

Agenda

We will read selected parts of the R4DS book, in a very hands-on fashion.
One of us will share the screen and demonstrate those parts on their environment.
Participants are encouraged to follow along on their environments.

Preparing for the session

Please install R on your machine, and make sure you can use it from some editor or IDE.

Platform

  • We will use Zoom for the video call.
  • We will use the #ds4clj stream of the Clojurians Zulip for chat, see the prep meeting: studying R and Tidyverse topic thread.
  • Please use that topic thread to reach out if you need any help in preparing for the session.

See you all on Saturday.

Please note that another hour was announced on the Zulip chat.
The correct hour is the one in this Clojureverse event.

If anybody finds that uncomfortable, then we may be able to add a session later this Saturday.
Please let me know. :pray:

See you this Saturday!

It is recommended to prepare a working environment for trying our R code.
That is, install R and preferably have some editor connected to it.
