Have you ever watched a livestream? Have you ever wondered what the actual minute to minute of doing data science looks like? Do you wonder if other R users have the same frustrations as you? If yes — then read on!

I’m off on a new professional adventure where I am doing public facing work for the first time in years. While working at home the other day I thought it would be a great idea to keep myself on-task and document my decisions if I recorded myself working with my webcam. Then, I thought, why stop there — why not livestream my work? 

And thus, the R Data Science Livestream was born. The idea is that every day for an hour or two I will livestream myself doing some data science tasks related to my current project — which is to analyze dozens of years of FBI Uniform Crime reports (read more). I haven’t done much R coding in the last 4 months, so it’s also a good way to shake off the rust of being out of the game for so long.

So if you are at all interested or curious why someone would do this, check out the landing page I put up to document the project and if you are really curious, maybe even tune in or watch the archives on YouTube!
