R-Ladies SB 1st Annual Ugly Plot Contest


Hi R-Ladies SB and beyond,

Please join us for some end-of-the-year holiday cheer as we embark on our first annual Ugly Plot Contest! This will be an evening of collaborative coding with the intention of making the ugliest plot possible by demonstrating ways NOT to display your data. As a bonus, creators of the ugliest plots will be mailed R-Ladies SB hex stickers :D

To make these plots, we’ll be using a data set about holiday sweaters, taken from a survey of folks all around the world - however, we’d love your data too! If you have a moment, please fill out this survey about your holiday sweater(s), and your data will be featured in our contest:

Please also feel free to share this survey with friends/family/colleagues (the more data, the better!).

Survey notes:

  • If you are lucky enough to have MORE THAN ONE sweater, please fill out this form once for each sweater you have!! #tidydata
  • If you have a sweater, please fill out every question! 'No' responses are useful.
  • If you DON'T have a holiday sweater, you can leave the rest blank

Instructions for installing R/RStudio or setting up Git/GitHub can be found near the bottom of our GitHub’s README (, and the Zoom link will become available upon RSVPing. We’ll make these ugly sweater data available as we get a bit closer to the event.

Looking forward to seeing you!

The R-Ladies SB organizers
