#TidyTuesday Meetup led by Kevin Kent

#TidyTuesday is a weekly data project aimed at the R ecosystem (see info below). An emphasis is placed on understanding how to summarize and arrange data to make meaningful charts with ggplot2, tidyr, dplyr, and other tools in the tidyverse ecosystem.

This meetup will be hands-on: after a brief introduction of #TidyTuesday and the weekly dataset, everyone will have a chance to explore the data in small groups and then share their work with their group. If you have a laptop, please bring it with you so you can play along! Whether you want to practice exploratory visualization, apply a new analytical technique, try out a new plot theme or just learn tidyverse things from others, #TidyTuesday is for you.

To get a sense for #TidyTuesday ahead of time, check out the hashtag on Twitter, explore past datasets or check out David Robinson's screencasts below:
