What we're about

R-Ladies Brisbane welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you're a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking & expert upskilling. Our community is designed to develop our members' R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing. Supporting minority identity access to STEM skills & careers, the Free Software Movement, and contributing to the global R community!
A local chapter of R-Ladies Global, R-Ladies Brisbane exists to promote gender diversity in the R community worldwide. We are pro-actively inclusive of queer, trans, and all minority identities, with additional sensitivity to intersectional identities. Our priority is to provide a safe community space for anyone identifying as a minority gender who is interested in and/or working with R. As a founding principle, there is no cost or charge to participate in any of our R-Ladies communities around the world.

We are part of Global R-Ladies group. You can access our presentations, R scripts, and Projects on our Github account and follow us on twitter to stay up to date about R-Ladies news!

PS Community Policies & Code of Conduct:
The leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by minority genders (majority gender speakers may be allowed/invited as one-off guests in exceptional circumstances at the leadership team's discretion). Due to unexpected demand, we have opened learning participation to all genders, dependent on initial and on-going vetting by the leadership team. However, the stated priority of the R-Ladies communities is the development & support specifically of those identifying as a minority gender, and we, therefore, reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures the leadership team deems appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies Brisbane is expected to fully respect each other, the mandate of this community, and the goodwill on which R-Ladies is founded, or face expulsion/a penalty of any form, at the discretion of the leadership team.

Full community guidelines are found here: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki

Virtual presentations - Data Manipulation with dplyr

* What are we going to learn? "dplyr" is a powerful R-package to manipulate, clean and summarise unstructured data. In short, it makes data exploration and data manipulation easy and fast in R. In this talk, you will see basic uses of "dplyr" and how you can use it in your data exploratory tasks. * Who is going to present? Let's welcome Ruth Chirinos our guest presenter. She is a System Engineer and Manager of Information Systems with a strong knowledge in software development for the government and telecommunication enterprises.

We would like to invite everyone to meet at 8:30 am to share your morning coffee or tea cuppa with us virtually. An opportunity to say hi and chat before starting the presentation at 9:00 am. ************The presentation will start at 9:00 am.************ * Where are we meeting? We will meet virtually using Zoom, the link will be visible to people who RSVP. * What else is needed? This is a short presentation, so get your questions ready! we will aim to get those answered during the session. If you want to use the dplyr package from this presentation you can install it on the R console: # The easiest way to get dplyr is to install the whole tidyverse: install.packages("tidyverse") # Alternatively, install just dplyr: install.packages("dplyr") # or install the developer version install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("tidyverse/dplyr") we look forward to seeing you, if you have any questions please get in touch.
