Accra’s inaugural R-session took place on Wednesday 13 April, in the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST).
This first meeting was to identify the proficiency level of the community, and to showcase exploratory data analysis using ggplot2, dplyr, and tidyr. Yes, R is more than the Hadleyverse, but it’s probably the easiest to understand I think. The script can be found on our github page.
We had about 10 attendees, which is less than the 27 RSVPs, and definitely only a fraction of our 300+ community, so more outreach is required! Everybody in attendance was an R beginner, which might be due to the presentation subject matter.
