All events are intended for women as leaders, mentors, members, and attendees. We are emphatically queer and trans friendly. Men are welcomed to attend as guests.

Community Policies & Code of Conduct:
The leadership and mentoring roles within this Community are held exclusively by women - however learning participation is open to all genders. The stated priority of this meetup is the development and support of its female members, and we therefore reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures we deem appropriate. All members and event attendees are expected to fully respect each other and the mandate of this meetup, or face expulsion of any form, whether from events, meetup membership, or any other Community participation.

[ONLINE] R-Ladies RTP x SB meetup: #tidytuesday Work Group (on a Wednesday)

Link visible for attendees

Come join your fellow R users in R-Ladies RTP and R-Ladies Santa Barbara in a joint meet up exploring a #tidytuesday data set! For those craving human connection and some practice flexing your data science skills, this is the event for you! We will hold our event via Zoom, where you can meet other R-ladies, improve your R skills, and build your data science portfolio. This event is for people at all levels of R (beginner through advanced).

All events are intended for minoritized genders as leaders, mentors, members, and attendees. We are emphatically queer and trans friendly. Men are welcomed to attend as guests and must be accompanied by the member who invited them. This group was created so that women, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and minoritized folks have a comfortable place to learn. If you would like to attend and feel excluded, please introduce yourself to an organizer.

At this event, we'll check out the LTERdataSampler R package. Specifically, this R package contains a number of data sets from Long-term Ecological Research (LTER) sites. You can read more about it here: https://lter.github.io/lterdatasampler/index.html.

Agenda (all times in ET):
6:30 - 6:45 pm Meet & Greet
6:45 - 7:45 pm #tidytuesday breakout rooms
7:45 - 8:00 pm Discussion

What is #tidytuesday?
#TidyTuesday is a weekly social data project created by the R4DS online learning community that is focused on using tidyverse packages. A new data set and accompanying article featuring an interesting plot is released on Github every Monday. The goal is to generate a copy of the original plot or create your own original approach! For more information on #tidytuesday, check out the main repository page.

Who is this for?
New and experienced R users alike! Let's learn together! All are welcome, including R-Ladies RTP members and R-Ladies from around the world. This meetup is organized in collaboration with R-Ladies Santa Barbara.

What should I bring?
You'll need a computer with videoconferencing capabilities and R. Serve yourself a beverage and a snack to fuel your evening!

Where will it take place?
Please join us online via Zoom. A link to join will be provided when you RSVP.
