Git, GitHub & version control

Wed, 2020-02-26 15:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Version control enables single authors or group collaborators to create and share project timelines, transparently tell the story of a project, manage collaboration, experiment with alternative options, and create back-up repositories.  Git is one of the dominant, open-source, version control applications. GitHub is social coding and project cloud tool fed by a git remote.

Come learn how all this works and create your own "Hello World" GitHub repository.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

Part of the Rfun learning series

Come once or come each week:  This six-week, semi-guided hour provides a safe and comfortable environment for learning more about the R programming language, RStudio, and the Tidyverse.  The curriculum is based on the Master the Tidyverse workshop.  The series goal is to enable researchers and students a low-stress hour to hone your own data savvy skills.  Attendees will gain greater familiarity with a tool-suite designed to foster reproducibility and transparency vital for the researcher's workflow.

In the first meeting we will introduce R, RStudio and the Tidyverse as well as outline several self-directed learning resources (below).  Follow and join any of the the remining weekly sessions.  Each week covers a new topic in the Master the Tidyverse series. Reinforcement is on-your-own through self-directed resources.  Assignments are optional.  Intermediate and advanced users will, optionally, design your own curriculum and benefit from interacting and supporting a helpful network of campus R users.

CDVS Workshop: Data Science Tools Showcase: Spatial Analysis with R and Python

Thu, 2020-02-20 20:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Some people who want to do spatial (geographic) analysis don't know ArcPro or QGIS, but do know R or Python. In this workshop, we will present a command-line, or code-driven, approach to working with geospatial data. This method offers several advantages over traditional GIS software that can make your work easier, faster, and more reproducible! We will share a showcase of spatial data science workflows that demonstrate the possibilities opened up by tools available from the command-line and scripting for processing, analyzing and visualizing data.

Some people who want to do spatial (geographic) analysis don’t know ArcPro or QGIS, but do know R or Python. In this workshop, we will present a command-line, or code-driven, approach to working with geospatial data. This method offers several advantages over traditional GIS software that can make your work easier, faster, and more reproducible!

We will share a showcase of spatial data science workflows that demonstrate the possibilities opened up by tools available from the command-line and scripting for processing, analyzing and visualizing data. 

This workshop would be helpful for participants with some GIS experience who want to expand their data science toolkit, or for those who currently use R and/or Python and are curious about the geospatial capabilities of these languages. 

Some basic familiarity with programming in R and/or Python will make this workshop more useful. We encourage anyone without this background to attend (or watch a recording of) our Introduction to R or Python for Data Science workshops.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

CDVS Workshop: Spatial Analysis with R

Wed, 2020-02-19 18:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Do you already use R and want to learn more about working with geospatial data? You don't necessarily need GIS software. Often you can analyze your data and make maps entirely in R. In this workshop we will introduce methods for processing and analyzing geospatial data in R. We will talk about how different types of spatial data work in R, walk though common spatial data operations such joins, and perform basic spatial analysis. This workshop is a companion to Mapping in R, which focus on visualization more than analysis.

CDVS Workshop: Research Data Management 101 for Humanists

Wed, 2020-02-19 15:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Humanists work with various media, content and materials (sources) as part of their research. These sources can be considered data. This workshop will introduce data management practices for humanities scholars to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a humanities lens with discipline-based, concrete examples. During the workshop, participants will also engage in discussions with their peers on data management concepts as well as learn about one specific tool as a method to assess how tools can enable specific data management practices. The tool explored in this workshop will be Tropy - an open source image management tool.

CDVS Workshop: Introduction to R: the data science Tidyverse

Fri, 2020-02-14 15:00
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
A gentle introduction to R and the Tidyverse. This suite of data savvy tools and techniques enable flexible reporting via literate programing as a means to achieve reproducible and transparent analysis. The workshop begins with a measured and deliberate orientation to the RStudio interface. Participants will import data (readr). We continue with a step-by-step approach to transform and wrangle data (dplyr). Finally, we introduce basic exploratory data analysis (EDA.) Participants can expect explanation, demonstration and code examples along with hands-on learning.

Digital Scholarship Open House

Thu, 2020-02-13 17:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

At its annual open house Duke University Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Services department showcases some of its work over the past year. This year’s slate of speakers and projects offers a view into what it means to create public-oriented digital scholarship -- from considering the interests of collaborators in how the scholarship is shared, to ensuring the scholarship reaches audiences most likely to benefit from it, to using audience feedback and needs to drive future work. Whether you are just interested in learning more about digital scholarship, publishing, and public scholarship, or planning to start your own publishing project, join us for lunch and conversation with this cross-disciplinary panel as they discuss the motivations behind their projects, the people and work involved in realizing it, and the insights and skills gained along the way.

  • Joella Bitter (Doctoral candidate in Cultural Anthropology)

  • David Johnston (Associate Professor of the Practice of Marine Conservation Ecology, Nicholas School of the Environment)

  • Elizabeth Schrader (Doctoral candidate in Early Christianity, Department of Religion)

  • Nicholas Smolenski (Doctoral candidate in Musicology, Department of Music)

Sponsored by Duke Libraries’ Digital Scholarship and Publishing Services, with special thanks to the Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communications and ScholarWorks: A Center for Scholarly Publishing at Duke University Libraries.

CDVS Workshop: Mapping with R

Wed, 2020-02-12 18:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
R has become a popular and reproducible option for supporting spatial and statistical analysis. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how to plot x/y coordinates; how to generate thematic chloropleths with US Census and other federal data; import GIS shapefiles; and create interactive maps on the web. The focus will be on mapping (making a visual). Please see the schedule for related workshops the following week: one that focuses on geospatial analysis using R, and one that showcases some of the analysis that you can do with programmic tools such as R and Python.
