This month we are excited to talk a bit about Tidy Tuesday and the Australian fires! We are going to break into groups of 3 or 4 and work together on using the Tidy Tuesday Australian fires dataset to create a data visualization using R. We can dig into the data, hopefully create some cool visualizations, and gain some experience working to create something together.

At the end of the time, we can each show some results and maybe put them on Twitter to share with the broader R community. If at the end of the meetup, groups are not done and want to continue to work toward something more final, attendees are welcome to use the Slack channel to communicate and post questions and results.

Go here to explore the Tidy Tuesday GitHub page about this week's dataset:
