Data Wranglers DC Message Board › All the goodies from the DWDC meetup last night

All the goodies from the DWDC meetup last night

Robert D.

Good morning,
Last night was another excellent meetup with Aaron speaking for close to an hour-and-a-half, showing a metric ton of how-to data munging with R. It was great seeing so many data wranglers stay to the end. You are hardcore!
All The Things
Aaron has posted his materials online. Rather than provide a single, ginormous how-to, he's written a series of blog posts: http://planspace.org/2014/01/07/clean-data-with-r/­. This page also contains links to the data he was working with as well as the R code he wrote: https://github.com/ajschumacher/clean_data_with_R­.
As a side note, if you're unfamiliar with GitHub, you can download a copy of the data by clicking the "Download Zip" button on the right-hand side of the page.
Next Month
Our next meetup is on February the 5th at 6:30 p.m. Travis Hoppe will be speaking about parsing textual data into a usable form using Pyparsing. If you want to follow along, download and install instructions are here: http://pyparsing.wikispaces.com/Download+and+Installation­.
Please RSVP for the meetup so I know how much pizza to get. We are definitely a pizza eating bunch.
Future Meetup Topics
More topics are flooding in! We've got:

  • Advanced data munging with R
  • Parsing PDFs
  • Making The Move From Stata to R

If there's a topic you'd like to get hands-on with please let me know. If there's a topic you can speak on please let me know.
Connecting on LinkedIn
The DWDC LinkedIn group is the place for conversations. Join your fellow data wranglers and let's talk data!
That's All Folks
Have a fantastic rest of your week, and if there's anything I can do for you, please let me know.
Sincerely,
Robert Dempsey
