First Accra R-User meetup a success!
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.
simply issue something like 10-15 exercises, let the teams of 2 work them out while I circle around helping people… when a team finishes, they also have to circle around to help others etc etc till everyone is done, then we switch do another 10-15 harder ones. Let’s see what approach works better.
Either way, it’s good that the community is finally up and running. Watch out R-world, Accra is coming up!
