The full talks of the ViennaR March Meetup are finally online: A short Introduction to ViennaR, Laura Vana introducing R-Ladies Vienna and Hadley Wickham with a great introduction to tidy(er) data and the new functions
pivot_longer(). Stay tuned for the next ViennaR Meetups!
You can download the slides of the introduction here.
Laura Vana: R-Ladies
Laura introduced the R-Ladies Vienna – a program initiated by the R-Consortium to
achieve proportionate representation by encouraging, inspiring, and empowering the minorities currently underrepresented in the R community. R-Ladies’ primary focus, therefore, is on supporting the R enthusiasts who identify as an underrepresented minority to achieve their programming potential, by building a collaborative global network of R leaders, mentors, learners, and developers to facilitate individual and collective progress worldwide.
Hadley Wickham: Tidy(er) Data
Hadley Wickham’s talk covered the tidyr package and two new functions:
pivot_long() which have finally been renamed to
pivot_longer() as a result of a survey, see also the posts on Twitter and Github. These function should replace
spread() since they seem to be hard-to-remember for most users coming to tidyr.
See you at one of our next Meetup/Course/Get-Together!
