CDVS Workshop: Slides with Rmarkdown: Xaringan

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2021-04-06 22:30
Tue, Apr 06, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. R markdown is a means of applying structure to the prose in your coding document. Using R Markdown and the xaringan package, attendees will integrate code with natural language (i.e. prose) to render presentation slides as a reproducible report. The method of integrating code with prose is known as literate coding. Attendees will focus their energies on rendering slides as one type of report while being introduced to an array of report types that can be generated from the same code.

Tue, Mar 30, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. Tableau Public (available for both Windows and Mac) is incredibly useful free software that allows individuals to quickly and easily explore their data with a wide variety of visual representations, as well as create interactive web-based visualization dashboards. This workshop will focus on using Tableau Public to create data visualizations, starting with an overview of how the program thinks about data, common data manipulation and loading, and the terminology used. Activities will include a sample data visualization and mapping project, which will give people hands-on experience using Tableau's basic chart types and dashboard creation tools. We will also discuss publishing to the Tableau Public web server and related services and tools, like the full Tableau Desktop application (free for full-time students).

Tue, Mar 23, 2021
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. In this workshop we will focus on ggplot2, a library for R that creates clear and well-designed visualizations and that plays well with other tidyverse packages. Attendees will get up and running quickly with ggplot2, going through a variety of examples to learn how to understand, modify, and create ggplot2 visualizations. Building basic skills with visualization will improve your ability to create quick, exploratory visualizations for data analysis as well as more formal, outward-facing visualizations for presentations or publications.
