What we're about

R-Ladies Freiburg is a local chapter of R-Ladies Global, an initiative to promote gender diversity in the R community worldwide. We welcome members of all R proficiency levels, whether you're a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking & upskilling.

We currently meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 6pm Central European time (i.e. 12pm EST), for hour-long workshops and events.

At R-Ladies Freiburg, we are dedicated to being proactively 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.

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 Freiburg 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.

Tidy data: Wrangling for statistical analysis in R

Link visible for attendees

We're starting a brand new series walking you through all the steps necessary to prepare, explore, and analyse your data in R!

This first workshop covers the concepts of "tidy data" and data wrangling commands from the tidyverse packages: the essentials for getting your data into the right format for visualisation and model fitting.

This event is suitable for beginners - you should know how to load packages and read data into R. Feel free to take a look at our video that covers these tasks: https://youtu.be/NO6ikdBxSwg


It's important to us to ensure that R-Ladies Freiburg events are a safe space for anyone of a minority gender, specifically including transgender, gender non-conforming and nonbinary people as well as folks questioning their gender. All are welcome at this meetup but we specifically ask cisgender men to take a passive role and hold comments / questions until after others have had the chance to ask. Thank you for your support!
