R for Data Science Meet and Work Session


The R for Data Science reading group is a pre-dinner appetizer offering snacks, data science, and camaraderie. This reading group meets weekly to support those reading and working through exercise in R for Data Science, by Hadley Wickham and Garett Grolemund. All are welcome to join. Contact DSI graduate student Affiliate Rich Pauloo for more details.

How it Works

  • Each week, every member reads a chapter (any chapter) of R for Data Science before coming to the group.
  • We begin each session by sharing snacks. This is critical and cannot be skipped.
  • We then each share a 1 minute insight from out reading. Can be a function, thought, etc.
  • We spend the rest of the hour working independently or in small groups, either reading or doing exercises from the book.
