For this workshop, we will be using the Tidyverse data science packages for data munging and wrangling. We will also explore a variety of plotting methods (ggplot2), while learning how to wrangle our data to get it into an appropriate format for plotting. More details on the workshop and workshop materials can be found here.

This is a free, hands-on workshop available to all Harvard affiliates with no registration required.
