Event Details

From the R-Ladies STL MeetUp page:

If you looked back at some R code you wrote last year (or even last week), would you be able to understand what you did and why you did it? If you suddenly left your current job, would your colleagues be able to find and follow your code? Confusing code can cost you time, makes it harder to collaborate, and lowers the quality of work. Fortunately, there are promising practices for code formatting and other reproducible practices in R (and other coding languages) that are easy to use.

Join Bobbi Carothers for a hands-on workshop that will:

Demonstrate 10 simple formatting tips to improve your R code
Introduce an R package for automatically creating a codebook from your data
Provide an introduction to GitHub and why it is useful for sharing and collaborating on code and documentation

You will leave with access to an online Reproducibility Toolkit with tips and instructions on code formatting, data documentation, and how to use GitHub that you can use and share.

Sound interesting?

Join the R-Ladies MeetUp group for more information & let them know if you’ll be attending the Wednesday, October 3rd Meetup. Hope to see you there!
