What we're about

R-Ladies Rotterdam 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 non-profit, civil society 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 Rotterdam 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. Here are some links! You can access our presentations, R scripts and more (soon) 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 deem appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies Rotterdam 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

How diversely do we read? Web scrapping in R

In this workshop, we will provide an introduction to web scraping in R using the package {rvest}. We'll go through some examples together, learning the basic structure of webpages and exploring different ways to extract data from a website. The workshop is intended to be fun, and we'll be web scraping and web querying data about books and their authors to answer the question of how diversely do we read. Therefore it doesn't matter if you are a beginner or if you are an R expert, this workshop is for everyone! Looking forward to see you! ###### For this workshop please bring your laptop with R and Rstudio installed. We will be using the following packages: tidyverse and rvest.
