R Programming - Best Practices Workshop

Date: 2018-07-11 at 18:00
Location: San Francisco, United States

Description Snippet:

Come join us for a Best Practices Workshop!

When learning to program in R, there is often an emphasis on getting results as quickly as possible. This is understandable given the limited amount of time in a semester or project. However, this often leads to code that is difficult to debug, share, or re-use. This workshop will cover some best practices for programming in R to help avoid those problems.

Topics will include:
- Workflow
- Formatting style
- Programming patterns

Bring your laptops. The tutorial will be hands-on and will benefit both beginners and more advanced coders.

• Speaker Bio
Mei Eisenbach is a Data Scientist/Software Engineer with experience in R and Python. She just finished her Masters in Business Analytics and is looking for her next adventure.

6pm - 6:30pm: Networking
6:30pm - 7:45pm: Talk & Tutorial

R and Python study group

Date: 2018-07-14 at 10:00
Location: West des Moines, United States

Description Snippet:

Are you tired of learning and playing with Python and R alone? Would you like to get together with a few friends and learn together? I have been starting to learn R and Python for data science and following the typical route of videos and practice projects. I really want to ramp up my learning and exposure to different ways. Here is my proposal:

- Gather a small group of 2-5 and learn together.
- Meet at a coffee shop, library, or some other space that has Wi-Fi.
- Pick a project, data set or problem, then work to solve it with different tools.
- Keep it fluid and informal.
- Meet on a regular basis, say weekly to start, and adjust as needed.
- Aim to keep the meetings 2-4 hours long, but this can be adjusted to the project or group. People can come and go as needed.
- It does not have to be the same people each time, so you only have to commit to going once to check it out.

Are you interested? Show up at the meeting spot, have some coffee, meet ... read more at the event page.
